Helene Du Rietz - artist and songwriter biography.
Helene Du Rietz tears down the walls between Europe and Africa and between reggae, blues, oriental tones and traditional Swedish herding calls. She is the singer who wants to be everywhere - preferably at the same time.
A song was born on a beach in Gambia where Helene Du Rietz and her friend met a percussionist and started jamming. It ended with a studio recording - and a video.
”Dedication” is the first one of Helene Du Rietz thirteen songs from the album ready to be released on jna 7th. This particular song is clearly rooted in West African reggae with the producers JLive and Musa Touray in the background. In the foreground is the rapper Og Log and also Kora player Ansumana Suso.
