ADELLE NQETO ‘Folk singer, Adelle Nqeto, may be tiny but she has such a huge pres­ence on stage; I watched her per­form at Op­pikoppi and was blown away. She writes her own songs and plays acous­tic gui­tar. The fes­ti­val cir­cuit fre­quenter started Flint, Meet Spark, a duo that was promis­ing and then she went solo. Look out for her new EP, Lights,’ says He­len. LA SAUCE ‘Ri­hanna is the mu­si­cian La Sauce is most of­ten com­pared to. Maybe it’s this Dur­ban­ite’s edgy dress sense and per­sonal style. Or it could be her swag­ger-heavy vo­cals, which are per­fectly suited to the pop sound­scape that she en­hances with Zulu lyrics. Signed to Am­bi­tiouz En­ter­tain­ment, La Sauce fea­tured on Miss Pru’s “Phumelela”. Have a lis­ten to her pop­u­lar sin­gle, ‘‘Cooler Bag’’,’ says He­len. He­len Her­imbi was raised in Se­bo­keng, in the Vaal Tri­an­gle, where mu­sic was al­ways a part of her life. ‘I grew up in a home where my mother was al­ways singing, and both my broth­ers are mu­si­cians. The Jo­han­nes­burg-based mu­sic jour­nal­ist has her fin­ger on the mu­sic in­dus­try’s pulse and has played a vi­tal role in South Africa’s mu­sic scene for years.
