Description

The Stellenbosch University departments of Music and African Languages collaborate in this project to set new poems to music, in an attempt to create a new South African art song tradition. During the programme listeners have the unique opportunity to share in the creative process of young South African poets, composers and performers alike. These new compositions reflect on the rich heritage of the song in Afrikaans, whilst at the same time endeavouring to transcend the borders between languages and disciplines in order to find new voices.
