Venezuelan/Guatemalan-American singer, songwriter and producer KAINA has been solidified as an essential artist with the release of her critically acclaimed album, It Was A Home, via City Slang. Today she shares her stunning performance for the iconic NPR Tiny Desk series. She performs dynamic renditions of her songs, “It Was A Home”, “Apple”, and “Casita,” with the support of her band and fellow Chicago artists and creatives including Sen Morimoto, NNAMDÏ and more. The performance stays true to the whimsical tone of her album inspired by the Mr. Rogers TV series with cameos from the puppets that embody her bandmates. It Was A Home cements KAINA as a radical voice of sweetness and empowerment within popular music today.
At the forefront of the vivacious music scene in her hometown of Chicago, her new project It Was A Home sees KAINA stepping into the national arena as a force. The sensational body of work is a result of KAINA’s own personal evolution lined with a newly found sense of self and her acceptance of radical self love. Sonically, KAINA puts forth a collection of songs that expand her dynamic range, while still maintaining roots in her signature sound. Additionally, it features stunning collaborations with beloved artists Sleater-Kinney, Helado Negro and Sen Morimoto.
Additionally, KAINA’s headlining US tour has been moved to April 28th in Toronto through July 17th in Chicago, which follows a performance in Los Angeles this weekend on March 26th.
