Gert Vlok Nel

gertvloknel.jpg

Gert Vlok Nel is a singer and poet from South-Africa. After seeing a documentary on television i was impressed and moved by the music of this shy and quiet man. The music is melancholic and “real”; although mostly sung in Afrikaans you just feel what he has to say. Genre: folk, singer/songwriter.

This week Munich Records rolled out the new version of the CD “Beaufort-Wes se Beautiful Woorde”. As an extra you get the documentary on DVD.

Beautiful from Beaufort-Wes indeed… Very.

The CD/DVD is available at Bol.com (Dutch).
