Corporate veteran and writer Reini has lived in South Africa since childhood. In his other life he is a lawyer. The ingredients of his highly personal renditions range between European roots and a deep love of Africa.
Socio-political commentary, environmental issues and a quest for fairness define his minimalistic lyrics –
We are all rich and poor, black and white.
Prisoner set us free – you are who we might be.
All the pictures on your wall will end up hanging in my head.
They say we crawled out of the ocean neither fish nor fowl.
He keeps his options open like a can of gasoline.
They don’t belong to anyone they are perfect on their own.
You were my dream that didn’t come true.
Plastic islands in a sea of technology.
Flew to Corsica on Google maps the other day.
My malaise derailed you where could you have run to.
The view from paradise across the bay changes magnificently every day.
You are the constant resident in my soul.
