Neon Metropolis Tokyo Meets Africa’s Tropical Ghana.
Katini is known and loved for her beautiful soul-touching music, inspired by the hearts of jazz. Her debut album Gone, is set to release in November, where her smokey, yet elegant voice speaks directly to your heart.
Katini’s music translates in the way modern jazz often quotes an earlier standard – to pay soft homage to the tradition, but also to transform it. Jazz, has allowed Katini to find a shared musical language across the cultures and countries she has traveled. From her deep roots in Africa, Katini’s music has allowed her to connect with, and to integrate, her father’s culture, and the her minimalistic approach to jazz was born from her Japanese mother.
Katini is one of New Yorks finest upcoming jazz singers her work ranges from performing at the Montreux Jazz Festival, the United Nations International Day Of Peace in Australia and national and international television world wide.
