Tali

aka Natalia Scott, Natalia Sheppard


During the late 90s and early 2000s, UK jungle/ drum & bass music was one of the crucial sounds of underground cool across New Zealand. It was a decidedly male dominated scene, but as the new millennium dawned a shift began, heralded by the arrival of a young Christchurch based MC and promoter known as Tali.

Equally adept at singing, rapping and hosting the stage, Tali, whose given name was Natalia Scott (now Natalia Sheppard), made the transition from a regional figure to a national underground star quickly, before making the jump across the ditch to Melbourne.
