Reina Rodina is a young female artist from Friesland, The Netherlands.

She sings in her own minority language, Frisian, which lies closest to her heart. Her music can not be categorized easily, but the term dreampop – sounds floating from ambient to post-rock – covers it fairly. Sometimes her music touches Björk, Lamb, Yann Tiersen and Massive Attack.

She sings in her own minority language, Frisian, which lies closest to her heart. Her music can not be categorized easily, but the term dreampop – sounds floating from ambient to post-rock – covers it fairly. Sometimes her music touches Björk, Lamb, Yann Tiersen and Massive Attack.

In 2011 she got her bachelor degree for the Academy of Pop Culture in Leeuwarden (NL), but at that time she was actually already independent. That same year she had already put up her solo tour ‘WetterKâld’ in Friesland. The tour was something special, with Reina performing on the water in a quiet and peaceful surrounding, with a bright lightshow and disturbing visuals on an impressive screen in the background, while visitors were led to the stage on barges, not knowing where they were going. Nature and the clash of different feelings and thoughts (silence vs. chaos) are very important elements of Reina Rodinas music and abstract lyrics, so the setting was perfect. The concerts brought her a lot of attention in her province of birth.

In November 2011 the album ‘WetterKâld’, with songs from the tour and more, is released. Reina Rodina worked on it intensively with producer Phil Mills (a.o. Nerve and Junkie XL) and the trip from dark to light and from melancholy to pride is put in wide soundscapes, over which she sings, talks, plays the piano and violin and takes her listeners on a trip through silence and chaos, a contradiction that is always important in her work.

At this moment she is broadening her horizon. The stage is international, although the small language Frisian is used, or maybe just because of the sounds it brings forth and suit the music so perfectly. She will bring her new experiences, material and creativity home to record new songs and plan other projects.
