Music and Poetry have ever been acknowledged Sisters, which walking hand in hand support each other; As poetry is the harmony of words, so music is that of notes; and as poetry is a rise above prose and oratory, so is music the exaltation of poetry.

This show illustrates the fact there has always been poets and writers but when they collaborate it results in something really unique. For instance Schuman and Heine’s Dichterliebe and also Di Capua and Caputa’s unforgettable O Sole Mio.

In our South African history there are many such examples of poetry set to music from the works of A.G.Visser to Boerneef and even N.P.van Wyk. This concert takes us on a unforgettable journey of the most beautiful Afrikaans poetry set to music from the time of the FAK to modern songwriter/composers like Coenie de Villiers and Chris Chameleon.
