The “Killing the Blues” series, named after Roulanda Selia, is Katarina’s new project, whose repertoire is composed of the poems of authors that influenced her style of writing, as well as the cantautor style in general: Tom Wats, Bob Dylan, Johnny Mitchell and many others. Besides Catherine, trio is made by Ana Protulipac (bass guitar, voice) and Slaven Ljujić (drums).
With the intention of presenting to the audience cantautor music that escapes the genre, Katarina will, in new arrangements of the piano trio, perform songs of musicians who entered the rock and roll history, as well as those who are now setting new criteria for what the blues is, what American, and what is “singer-songwriter” music.
