Her love for music and dance started as toddler and as a child and teenager Rita Li competed in countless Eisteddfods, music and dance competitions and was crowned winner on many of them.
Her first EP, Inkleurboek, released in 2018 has five varying tracks to illustrate her rich musical background. Rita-Li has had formal training in piano, flute, dance and vocals, including masterclasses with acclaimed songwriter and cabaret artist Gisela de Villiers for the last 13 years. ‘Genre’ is just a word for Rita-Li, as she seamlessly sashays between pop, Western classical, jazz, cabaret and more.
A collaboration with songwriter Johan Oberholzer, a gem in the crown of the Afrikaans music industry, brought about Rita-Li’s latest single, My Eerste, My Laaste – which went on to earn the title of Jacaranda FM’s Chamberlains Hot Hit in July 2019, a week after its premiere. Her songs have been featured on various other Top 20 radio charts, including that of Groot FM , Bok Radio and Bosveld Stereo.
