Rrita is one of the founders of the Brussels based 54KOLAKTIV and 54 Sound, a Jamaican style handcrafted soundsystem. In her sets, she blends sounds from various eras and areas, ranging from experimental, ethnical and underground music to dancefloor hits or even more poppy music – all of this depending on her mood, the context, place, public and the things she’s been listening to in that specific phase of her life. As long as the music touches us and makes us groove… No music purism here!
