Eric Sell a.k.a. EES is a Namibian musician and music producer. Being of German-Namibian origin EES has become the first established ‘white Kwaito Artist’, representing one of Africas most booming music genres.
EES discovered his love for music first in 2001 when doing his diploma in sound engineering in Cape Town. After finishing his studies in Capetown EES moved to Europe in 2004 to introduce and improve on his music skills while trying to promote African music at the same time in Europe. Ever since he has been making a massive impact for Kwaito music outside of Africa. He has not only produced 11 CD’s in only 9 years, but also founded his own record label and his clothing line (EES Wear) while at the same time never loosing touch with his roots in Africa. EES has also won several awards, among them the Channel O Africa Music Awards in 2012, Best International Artist at the NAMA Awards 2011 and the MTV Listeners Choice Award in 2009 .
At TEDxMünster EES will talk about his life between two continents, the differences of the European and African music industry and his personal ambition to boost Kwaito music internationally. – (Talk in Englisch)
