(Cati Sesana, born 1993 in Bogotá, Colombia) Inspired by her family's love for music, Cati picked up the drums at age 9, fueled by a dream to start a family band. Though the rock band family dream wasn’t meant to be, she was hooked and a passion was ignited. This passion taught her early on that playing music is both a privilege and gift, and she learned to respect those truths during her weekly lessons with Eddie Money's drummer John Snider as she finished middle school and high school. She moved to Washington, DC to study music at The George Washington University while playing D1 water polo, but by her third year, Cati switched her focus solely to music and joined the school’s jazz combo, Latin, and fusion groups. While in school, she joined REX, a DC-based punk/go-go band, which connected her with the local music scene and led her to join original rock band Osiris Device. She went on to play with both bands at venues like the National Museum of American History and the opening festival of local staple 7DrumCity. In 2017, she was offered a drumming position with two local bands—The Perfectionists, a popular DC cover band, and allthebestkids, an original funk/hip-hop band—solidifying her local career as a sought-after drummer. Cati has performed at The Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, Union Stage, and 9:30 Club. Cati continues playing with cover band The Perfectionists along with The Fuss, an eight piece reggae/ska band, and RoseRiot, an all-female pop punk original band.
