Kanta Hélele is a very personal project, both in terms of composition and in the deep development of my singing, says Izaline Calister, talking about her fourth CD. On this album, as on her previous Network CD, we hear her voice in all its purity, straight from the soul. We encounter Izaline direct on this CD. And she appeals directly to us: Kanta Hélele is an expression of my love for life, my optimistic nature, my humour and my great love of all that is melancholic, melodic, rhythmic and from the heart.
I collect stories, she says – stories of friends and of the little things that happen to the people around her, or newspaper reports – and combines them with her own views and feelings about her life on Curaçao and in Holland, divided between two worlds.
