Originally conceived as a platform for women’s artistry, Kitty Pak has evolved into an ongoing creative communion bringing together some of the most dynamic and inventive sonic explorers on the Bay Area scene. Led by Dakini Star, vocalist for Goddess Alchemy, Kitty Pak usually features a disparate array of women, and for this YBGF show the lineup is a veritable supergroup. Virtuoso Jazz Mafia violinist Shaina Evoniuk and trombonist/vocalist Sophie Powers provide the instrumental heft. Freestyle rapper, poet, singer and MC Aima The Dreamer dishes out the verse while DJ Lady Ryan lays out the aural architecture and New York-trained jazz vocalist Katrina Blackstone delivers scintillating soul. With their graceful delivery and intelligent lyricism, these women are reclaiming sensuality via consummate musical artistry.
