Inspired by her connection to Nature and her relationships with others, Reinel Bakole leads us through her haunting voice whose slight scratch reveals a touching sensibility. Her way of singing, lyrical, almost poetical, gives the audience the feeling of participating in an immersive experience whose watchwords are introspection, healing and fulfillment. Instinctive and avant-garde, Reinel Bakole is a multidisciplinary artist whose free spirit leaves no one indifferent. A contemporary, classical and jazz dancer since the age of 9, she showed a greater interest for music when she completed her bachelor degree in Urban Dance at the University of Arts of Amsterdam. She then developed a very particular universe with jazz and Afro-soul influences. Her questioning of her identity as an Afro-descendant woman is at the heart of her compositions. Faithful to her introspective texts, Reinel’s music is a manifestation of her deep reflections on the conscious mind by exploring Freudian theory and the ancestral rites of her original Congolese tribe, the Bashi.
