"Kaina’s hushed vocals will cradle you, even when she’s whispering about death."
- ROLLING STONE
"Hits like a spring day."
"..an album that crosses cultural and musical borders, a project equally beholden to her native Chicago and her Venezuelan and Guatemalan background"
- BANDCAMP DAILY
"These are the works of an artist embracing the whole of her identity in a sound that’s equally unique and epitomizing of all Chi-Town can be."
- CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND
"Lush and envelpoing"
“We’ve craved more of Kaina’s hushed R&B for a minute, and now the Venezuelan-Guatemalan singer is finally back with new music. The Chicago artist’s breathlessly soulful voice lends itself well to 'Green,' a meditation on ancestral bonds. 'I’ve been through so many moons,' she coos, as heartwarming images of a chosen & blood family dinner of arepas flash across the screen. The jazzy, horn-filled production would make Mario Bauzá proud.”
Produced by Kaina Castillo & Sen Morimoto
Recorded & created in the homes of Kaina, Sen and with Brok Mende at AudioTree Studios
Mixed and mastered by Brok Mende at AudioTree Studios
