Video: Kat Dahlia – ‘Gangsta’

Art imitates life in the video for Kat Dahlia’s debut single “Gangsta.” The 22-year-old Cuban-American singer reflects on the hardships her mother faced while raising her and her siblings following her parents’ divorce. The vibrant visuals were shot against the colorful backdrop of Kat’s hometown of Miami and incorporate her Cuban roots.

“It was really important for me to shoot this video in Miami because this is my hometown,” said Kat. “I think that the richness and the culture, the colors, the story, it just felt right.”

Kat is the first artist signed to Sylvia Rhone’s Vested in Culture label with Epic Records. She is readying her debut for release this year.
