‘ALETHEIA’S CALLING,’ the debut EP of Franco-Cameroonian artist and philosopher Dirtsa, is a bridge between cultures, ideas and sounds. Pulling from Greek and modern philosophy, the project is a duality of contrasting and complementary R&B and drill sounds. We spoke with Dirtsa about the truths she uncovered in its making.
French-Cameroonian artist Dirtsa is back with another single. “Questions” is more of the lyricists’ fierce delivery over a winding beat. She questions the ignorance towards ongoing worldwide injustices in a way that implies seeking answers means taking action.
Greatness from small beginnings. On “Sic Parvis Magna,” Dirtsa raps with a heroic sense of purpose as the emcee details her experience moving from Cameroon to France and combating the resulting discrimination.
The underdog story is a relatable one, but stories are often too easily romanticized. In glorifying the struggle for justice we can overlook the battle scars of the soldier. On “UNDERDOG” Dirtsa raps about the inner turmoil of fighting black oppression around the word.
