African Jazz Poet aka Mama D.
What Helmie Bellini has kept from her childhood in Africa is her noble and proud voice.
She pulled the best words, some lighter than others, from her European life. Strong and enriched from all the encounters, Helmie led her own musical and frontierless path.
Since her first record's release, Helmie has been part of the Institute of Musicians Educators of Paris ex American School of Modern Music, IMEP , where she is learning musical theory and harmony. She has also attended Bob Stoloff's vocal Jazz workshop and Emmanuel Djob's Gospel workshop. She has been part of the Berklee Summer School Umbria Jazz Festival 2013.
