RECAP: Liefde by die dam 2017

Alhoewel ek nie self by verlede jaar s’n was nie, kon mens agterkom aan die gehoor dat Liefde By Die Dam 2017 reeds soos ‘n instelling voel. Daar is ‘n rustige gemak aan die konsertgangers by Emmarentia Dam, wat heel waarskynlik omtrent op hul agterstoep kon kom piekniek hou, musiek luister, en aan ‘n maklike liefdadigheidsveldtog deelneem.

Francois van Coke - Hierdie is die lewe

Hierdie is die Lewe, meen Francois van Coke oor ouer raak

Francois Van Coke se nuwe album, Hierdie is Die Lewe, is intiem maar openbarend. Dis in-your-face, maar staan ook terug sodat jy die groter prentjie kan sien. Dit laat jou wonder of Van Coke dalk sy Converse ingeruil het vir pa tekkies, maar andersins, om dit in een woord op te som: passievol.

Alternatief Is Groot CD Cover

Alternatief is Groot, en wil jou die kys vra

Op hoërskool, as jy ‘n oulike jong dame in die oog gehad het maar nie seker was hoe om jou gevoelens aan haar te openbaar nie, kon jy altyd ‘n mix CD maak. Dis nou oor ek in die vroeë 2000’s (na die tyd van kasette) op hoërskool was – ek vermoed hulle maak deesdae speellyste op hul gunsteling aanlyn musiekstroomdiens. Bogenoemde CD was dan propvol liefdesliedjies, sodat sy sou seker wees. As CD-maker was dit jou werk om ‘n versameling goeie liedjies te kies, hul in mekaar te laat vloei deur noukeurig die volgorde uit te werk, maar belangrikste van alles: om sonder twyfel jou verliefdheid uit te druk. Nou het die mense agter Coleske ArtistsSupra Familias, en Afrikaans is Groot saamgewerk om ‘n mix CD te maak wat vir ‘n wye gehoor van alternatiewe Suid-Afrikaanse musiekliefhebbers: Alternatief is Groot.
