How it all began:

80's:

Raffaela grew up with pop, rock and classical music in her early years. In grammar-school she was already very active in music. Since the age of nine she successfully studied classical transverse flute for about four years.

90's

In high-school she won a Silver Rat - second price in the category music / Kunstbende (The Art gang)Raffaela had performed a self-written / produced song and was only 13 years old at that time.
The first price - the Golden rat - that year went to Trijntje Oosterhuis(www.trijntjeoosterhuis.nl)

A year later Raffaela was choosen in the same contest as best of all categories and won the award for most talented youngster. That was only the beginning.

In 1995 she discovered the Hip-Hop and R&B-genre and joined the girl-group Solid. After one year Solid she was asked to join Nero Scaldare group. Their combination of Hip-Hop tracks and R&B-vocals was very fresh back then.

In 1997 she made so
