Listen: Kaovanny – “Don’t You (No Te Atrevas)”

Kaovanny gives it to us two ways on her new single “Don’t You (No Te Atrevas)”. The versatile singer/rapper rides Afrobeat production for her bilingual declaration of independence. In English and Spanish she lets it be known that she is 100% her own woman on the infectious single. This one will live on her upcoming EP entitled Tres.

Kao explains the genesis of her musical approach. “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.”
