Aletta is a dutch native, portugal based singer and songwriter. As a child Aletta would write poetry and start her piano lessons at nearly seven years old. Shortly after she began combining her poetry with her music she started her performing career in 1996. Inspired by singers and songwriters such as Minnie Riperton, Tori Amos and Stevie Wonder, Aletta performed solo as well as being a member of hip hop groups in the late 90's.
Her love for soul music and hip hop seemed difficult to combine with her songwriter material and therefore she mainly worked in projects.
