With her explosive mix of pop, rock and fiery Latino spirit, Colombian singer Fatiniza burst onto the music scene in 2009. Even as a young girl in the city of Bucaramanga, music flowed through her veins - Fatiniza was constantly scribbling down lyrics and humming melodies, a talent that matured into her gift for penning a great track.
Released in 2010, Fatiniza’s debut album, Confusion, stormed into the charts both here in the UAE and in her native Colombia, entering the local Virgin music charts at number 7. Meanwhile, Out of Control, the first single from the album, reached number 23 on Colombia’s singles chart.
Since her debut, Fatiniza has established herself as one brightest stars on the music scene in Dubai – nominated for Time Out’s Music & Nightlife Awards’ ‘Best Artist in Dubai’ for 2010, 2011 and 2012, as well as Ahlan’s Best Artist in Dubai for 2012 and becoming one of Dubai’s Hot 100 individuals in 2013.
As one of the region’s most popular international artists, Fatiniza has also opened for Corinne Bailey Rae at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, wowed the crowds at the Dubai Jazz Festival, and performed for His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, and His Highnes Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, as well as celebrities including Tiger Woods, and football giants AC Milan.
2012 was a particularly busy year for Fatiniza: as well as being nominated yet again for Time Out’s Best Artist in Dubai, she also cleaned up at the prestigious Bite My Music Global Awards 2012 in Kuala Lumpur, the world’s biggest independent music awards, taking first place for ‘Best Female Act’ and first place for ‘Song of the Year’ with her debut single Out of Control.
MTV have featured Fatiniza’s singles including ‘Out of Control’, 'The One' and current single ‘Life’s A Mess’.
On March 1st 2013 Fatiniza released her much-anticipated follow-up album ‘Nothing is Impossible’, after joining forces with producers David Kershenbaum & Joshua F. Williams, who has worked with artists including Stevie Wonder, Akon, Fergie and Bruce Springsteen, as well as local talents Karl Wolf, Juliana Down and Gayathri. Nothing is Impossible is available for digital download and currently garnering rave reviews.
A strong believer in giving back, Fatiniza is Middle Eastern ambassador for marine conservation initiative 'Paddle for the Planet', which saw her headline a concert for the cause on World Environment Day, and release the eco-conscious track Today, with all profits donated to Paddle for the Planet.
