Turmalina is the third album by Uruguayan singer and actress Natalia Oreiro. It is also her first Spanish language album since 2000.

Background and production

Turmalina was produced by Latin maker Kike Santander and reflects and important step forward in Natalia Oreiro's musical career. The album was recorded in US, in the middle of the artist's worldwide tour. Natalia travelled with her musicians from Russia to Miami, from Miami to Prague, from Prague to Bucarest, from Bucarest to Miami for several months. Turmalina is a combination of rhythms such as rock, pop and some sort of reminiscent of the 70's and 80's sounds. It also combines murga, candombe and ballads. Everything carefully followed by guitar and percussion arrangements specially made by Uruguayan talent Jaime Roos.

On this album, Oreiro write and composed the songs: "Alas de libertad" (Wings of freedom), which is inspired by kids she met some time ago in the city of Jujuy, Argentina; "Mar" (Sea) tells the love story between a sailor and his girlfriend. Natalia also contributed to the lyrics of "Cayendo" (Falling) and "Caprichos" (Whims).

"Que Digan Lo Que Quieran" (Let Them Say What They Want) is Turmalina's first single. "Cuesta arriba, cuesta abajo" is the song related to the soap opera "Runaway Lady". The album had a simultaneous release in Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, Czech Republic, Russia, Hungary, Greece, Romania, Israel and Korea. Nearly 1.800.000 copies of this album have been sold worldwide.
