Throughout her career, Natalia has worked with a group of musicians called Trigon on an alternative jazz-folk experiment. She writes her own lyrics, composes the music for most of her songs, and collaborates on the arrangements with her crew.
In 2006, Natalia Barbu signed a three year contract with Cat Music Records (Sony Music) office in Bucharest.
On 14 December 2006, Barbu was selected to represent Moldova at the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 with the song "Fight". At the contest, she qualified from the semi-final on 10 May 2007 and ultimately placed 10th in the final on 12 May 2007, scoring 109 points.
In 2012, she began collaboration with musical producer Radu Sirbu and songwriter Ana Sirbu (Sianna) under the label Rassada Music. At the end of the summer Natalia premiered her new track, "I Said It’s Sad", which she says is a major style change for her. The new song reached #1 position in Top 10 Airplay Moldova. Later in 2012, she released "Iubire Cu Aroma De Cafea", and "Confession", which will participate at the Romanian national selection for Eurovision Song Contest 2013.
