Move on 




Carry me 

My pictures and stories comes from different moments in life. How do you build up your pictures and emotions?

This song might sound very different from Katyayani, but for the time of life and world around we might feel it sutes very well. 
Let yourself be carried in the moment❤️ please listen and share my music. 
Great thanks to musicpartner Juha Tuukkanen for sounds and studiomoments. 🙏

New release!

Katyayani paint
Dont give up!
Release is out now on all digital platforms

New things!

This summer, I’ve been lucky enough to work on music with my dad, Hasse Ahlstrand. We have rewritten the song ”Vargen” (the Wolf), originally published in 1980, and are now singing it together again, after 40 years. To be released soon! We want to thank Svenska kulturfonden for making this possible. Stay tuned

I am also working on an EP Shapes and shades with producer J. Tuukkanen, featuring Lotte Nyberg playing trumpet. The EP will be released in 2022 and will also feature background vocals by my daughter Juliana.

After silence

After silence and exposure is an installation where music, visual arts, and movement meet. The way each person experiences the installation is unique, but there is certainly something that connects them all.
The texts of the artist Katyayani, Catarina Johansson, and her interpretation of these songs stem from experience and the various phases in her life. In the moment, the things we go through can feel difficult, but they always bring things forward in some way. Catarina’s spiritual journey to this moment and album has been tough, but it is still conveyed to the listener that Hope is always present. Katyayani’s artistic interpretation comes about in collaboration with visiting artists.

After silence is Catarina Johansson’s first solo album, in connection to which she also created an installation in a gallery. Here, music, movement, and image are combined. Catarina’s songs are brought to life in collaboration with dancer Susanne Montag-Wärnå, saxophonist Jaakko Martikainen, guitarist Mathias Johnson, singer Rebecka Pahlman and producer J. Tuukkanen.

For the first time, Catarina brings forth her own visual art next to the music she has composed. Each song is connected to a work of art. The works create a body of art in the gallery space. The aim is to create a space that offers the viewer and listener a unique experience and strong emotions.
