The standards for Heightened Senses were set very high this year with a wonderful performance by The Katara Trio! Our goal was to create an amazing night at the one and only Labyrinth Studio, but more than that, we wanted to create a VIBE. YOU helped us with that. This night truly is something you have to experience for yourself; words can not do it justice.  With this many creatives in one room, the overflowing feeling of passion, love, dedication, art, openness, creativity, and community exuberates in all directions. Heightened senses’ has become an antenna, broadcasting these beautiful vibes like a call to action to everyone’s inner child!


 “I have a project called ‘The Katara Trio’.  We are a harp, bass, and drum trio that creates a blend of different music cultures to inspire peace and prosperity… Our sweet spot is Hip-hop and r&b, but we love to play jazz, funk, & pop as well. Our audience range is wide. We perform with rappers and vocalists, and also feature saxophone and cellists.” -Natalie Depergola


The Katara Trio is made up of Natalie Depergola, Seth Lynn, Jon Shea!
Natalie Depergola started playing drums at just 6 years old. As a seasoned drummer with experience both on stage and in the studio her knowledge reaches many areas within the music industry.  With deep roots in funk, jazz fusion and hip hop her strengths include a magnetic approach towards working/collaborating with other musicians and artists. Seth Lynn, is a multi-instrumentalist performing on the Harp, Piano, Guitar, and Bass.  Seth studied classical music since the age of eight performing around the country with various orchestras and ensembles. Bassist Jon Shea comes from the University of South Florida’s jazz program. At USF Jon made it to the top jazz ensembles, small groups, and big bands. He toured Europe twice with the jazz program! The band has been getting more and more recognition with each and every performance! Well deserved!
