With influences such as Sade, Lauryn Hill, Celia Cruz, Bob Marley, Bilal, Outkast, Selena and many more, Kaovanny comes with a package rich in purpose, culture, truth and art. With every intention to use all the sounds in her multi-cultural upbringing, Kaovanny strives to show her layers in hopes to help others understand and heal their own.
Through her enrapturing stage performances and convicting vocal tone, Kaovanny makes herself hard to forget after your first encounter with her art. This Dominican - American woman, born and raised in the small immigrant town of Lawrence, MA, knows no limits to the demographic of people she makes an impact on:
“I grew up with no rules for whom I needed to be. In America, I was too Spanish to fit with the Black kids and too Black to fit with the Spanish kids; In the Dominican Republic I was too American… But whenever I am on stage, I am everyone - whether we use words, sounds, or body language; in music, we all speak the same language. My goal is for the blind to believe my voice and for the deaf to believe my dance.”
Kaovanny has had the opportunity to step on stages such as the Boston Fashion Awards, Celebration of the Arts and more recently, Zildjian’s clinic showcase at Berklee College of Music, alongside renowned drummer, Aaron Spears. She also toured parts of the east coast with recording Christian group ‘e2vG’ who later released their debut live album “No More Me” on iTunes. Kaovanny closed the ‘Live Week’ for the number one college radio station in America, WERS’ - with an in-studio performance and interview, which was aired, live. Throughout her different performance experiences, Kaovanny has had the privilege to hit the stage with some distinguished bands such as Elevation Theory and Nurdy Tunes.
