“Hello to all friends and lovers of rare and vintage musical electronic toys. This is the first museum of lost organs, damned keyboards, childish synthesizers, dusty voice transformers and singing calculators. Most of them are from the 70ies and 80ies.”
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).
