Special Guest Performance by Katini Yamaoka

“My goal is to create music that will empower and positively impact the well being of people around the world” ~Katini Yamaoka

Born to a Japanese mother and Ghanaian father, Katini is the embodiment of a global artist who is fluent in 3 languages. Described by an industry insider as the “deca-threat” for her ability to maintain a soulful, rich and raw vocal while performing flawless choreography.

This year Katini released her single Neon Lights produced by multi-platinum producer Rance Dopson. Katini is currently recording her EP, influenced by sounds from her cultural lineage and can best be described as pop music with Afro-Japanese influence.

Katini has traveled the world performing in Japan, Australia, America, and Israel. She has been invited twice to speak and perform at the Global Forbes Under 30 Summit and her music has taken her from stages in Japan to Australia singing on national television and a featured performance at International Day Of Peace for the UN.

Katini has a passion for social impact and while performing and pushing her artistry forward she can be found actively pushing for gender equality as a board member of New York-based charity Global Connections for Women Foundation (GC4W).

Katini strives to bring a new dimension to pop music with her mission to be the global voice of positive millennial empowerment.
