Südafrika / South Africa / Suid Afrika
It was today, and it happened suddenly, that I decided to introduce (bekendstel) you music groups, musicians or singers from specific coutries of the world in no order and in sporadic time distances. And I'll begin with the country of South Africa (Suid Afrika). But why that? Because yesterday I was able to speak live and online to a wonderful person, who was born and growing up in that country, which I'm very interested in and meanwhile lives in a country, which I'm also interested in, even more, than in the other one.
I think, we had a very positive first acoustical contact, and my English pronounciation wasn't that horrible, I was afraid of.
So that person is a woman (what did YOU expect, häääh...?) ;-), and shes is a very talented mixer of music, which I was able to get to know since approx. one year, because she also is a member of the world wide spreaded field of the blogspot.com community. I saw some mixes of her floating around in the www beside of her lovely blog, and that's a good thing to know.
Some time in the last months I promised to rip her a long player (langspeelplaat) (?) from the 80s of the KALAHARI SURFERS, which are not very wellknown outside of the southern part of Africa, and even probably in the UK, where I got this record from. But as lazy as I am, I didn't do anything in that case so far, so there had to be found another solution for that promising problem I had.
Blessed with luck I found this lovely band yesterday, and I really want to lay it on all your hearts, ladies and gentlemen. Give a try, give a listen!
