She has a captivating, raw, authentic connection to the crowd whether she is singing and dancing or simply playing live piano with raw vocals.
Katriella also performs and and writes original music for community events. One of her most powerful performances was at a healing interfaith suicide awareness service in which she showcased her and Asa Fradkin's original melody to "Hine Matov". The crowd sang as one commemorating those that had been tragically lost to mental illness. The event was recorded by WAMU and was a beautiful way to gather together.
