When life speaks out, there are always people who harken to its voice. An artist who cannot be dissociated from Rai, the septuagenarian Rimittiā€™s life is closely interwoven with this music. With a career spanning half a century, she undoubtedly continues to be the most prolific and, above all, the most creative to contribute to this genre. Recounting her story, one truly sees a life that reflects the story of Rai.
