Latin artist KAINA hails from Chicago, but creates music that seamlessly blends genres and surpasses borders. It might have to do with her heavy behind the scenes work with artists from many genres, from Saba to Jamila Woods, and Ravyn Lenae. Today, KAINA gives a taste of her own work, sharing a stunning music video titled "Green" via The FADER. Watch it now up above.
The soft and sweet track provides an uplifting Latin-tinged percussion as KAINA engulfs the drums with a warm, breezy harmony on the hook. The colorful visual sees our singer spending the day with her large family, as they prepare an array of tantalizing meals.
"The song largely has to do with me thinking about lineage and the generations of people that had to exist before I could - and that my identity carries all of that along with my own experiences," KAINA tells FADER. "It makes me feel less alone as a first generation kid and that there is some sense of familiarity and connection I feel even though I may be miles away from family or didn’t get to meet those who passed."
