(Namibia, 1988) is a singer-songwriter loved for her smooth and powerful voice. Her roots are Namibian and Belgian in origin, but she grew up mainly in The Netherlands. In her work she brings these worlds together. Her music is comforting, and has a thread of strong social consciousness running through it. She founded the all female group Miss Catharsis in 2019. In her work as an anthropologist (BA) & musicologist (MA) she has specialised in contemporary urban Namibian music.
