Feelin’ the Flow en El Show- Kat Dahlia’s Showcase at Sayers Club

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMuchas estrellas were in the house recently for Cubana-Americana Kat Dahlia’s label showcase at the Sayers Club in Los Angeles on June 26. As you might recall, we featured Kat on our Being Latino site last month as she prepared to head to Europe to finish recording her debut album, My Garden, dropping in September.  Getting props by Timbaland and Snoop, she’s continued to create buzz, everywhere she goes. Folks like music icon LA Reid, rapper Casey Veggies and R&B singer Jojo were there to show their support for Kat, who performed a 30 minute set in a cozy, intimate setting, previewing her new album. Warmly introduced to the stage by her record label’s head, Vested in Culture’s founder Sylvia Rhone, Kat sang in English and Spanish, dedicating one of her songs to Celia Cruz. She brought her raw energy to the stage and offered a promising snapshot of what’s to come.
