The daughter of Cuban exiles, it was through artists such as Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, Sergio Mendes and Astrud Gilberto that Katrina was able to find her musical identity and connect to the culture her family left behind. Katrina’s dynamic range and sultry tone can be heard singing in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
