The KTNA wear their heart on their sleeve and channel an unapologetically strong, northern spirit into their craft. Twin sisters born in Kenya, raised and now residing in Manchester, Hope and Millie Katana weave their candid lyrics around unique productions to create music which demands to be noticed.
At 24 they have already achieved more than most, beginning their singing career on CBBC show Clash before catching the attention of TV executives who were quick to cast them in the long running BBC drama, Waterloo Road. However, it was always songwriting that burned the brightest and, after some setbacks, The KTNA were formed.
Their debut EP, Life Under Siege, kickstarted their musical project in March 2019, going on to receive support from the likes of Clash, The Fader, tmrw Mag, and BBC 1xtra. Brimming with raw honesty about past trauma whilst also looking optimistically ahead, the project resonated throughout the pandemic, as fans sought solace in the themes the EP explored.
The KTNA are delighted to be looking forward as they announce their debut UK tour, playing four shows throughout March and April, 2022.
