Kaia Kater Discusses Inspiration Behind 'Grenades' [Interview Video]
Description:
Kaia Kater draws on her personal identity, memory, her father’s journey as a political refugee, and a recording from Cook Records as inspiration for her Folkways album 'Grenades.' Shot on location at Newport Folk Festival, 2018. 'Grenades' available on CD, Vinyl LP, and Digital. Stream/download/purchase: Smithsonian Folkways: https://folkways.si.edu/kaia-kater/grenades Bandcamp: https://kaiakater.bandcamp.com/album/grenades A creative force in her own right, Kaia Kater rises to bold new heights of imagination and creative expression on her third album 'Grenades.' With abundant poise and poetry, Kater composes an odyssey about personal identity, memory, and discovery in the wake of her father’s journey as a young political refugee. She draws upon her diverse musical influences in Quebec, the Caribbean, and Appalachia, and her bicultural experience as a second generation Grenadian-Canadian, to envision a new path for herself and her songs.
