In Concert | Laurinda Hofmeyr and Sakka Stone
On Friday 11 September 2015 the Alliance Francaise du Cap will be hosting an evening of Afrikaans music with two acclaimed singer songwriters Laurinda Hofmeyr and Sakka Stone. Laurinda is a well known South African musician and songwriter who specializes in setting Afrikaans poetry to beautiful music. Accompanied by musicians Schalk Joubert, Kevin Gibson and Mabet van Wyk as well as the poetic text ranging from Breytenbach to Toast Coetzer, she offers a toe-curling musical experience that touches the soul. On top of that, this evening will form part of the launch tour of her brand new fourth album ‘wat ek wou sê’.

Sakka Stone is a son of the soil of Namaqualand. In 2011 he produced the Album Koperkoors (Copper Fever) in which he tells the story of how the discovery of copper changed the people of his beloved Namaqualand. In 2012 he released a second solo album Eenkantland incorporating stories told by one of Namaqualand’s well known sons Theunis Uys. In 2014 he released a mini CD including his stunning composition of the Afrikaaans poet George Weideman’s poem “Lied vir Johnny se vrou” (Song for Johnny ‘s wife). Join us for a gentle exploration of Afrikaans poetry and song writing and experience well known South African landscapes through different eyes.

The Alliance wine bar will have Audacia wines on sale and complimentary snacks will be provided.

SINGLE COVER[1]

“Sy laat jou gedig se hele betekenis verander. Dit vang ’n mens onkant.” Toast Coetzer praat van Laurinda Hofmeyr se toonsetting van sy gedig “Anyway” op haar jongste album Wat ek wou sê.

“Laurinda het die vernuf en talent om woorde wat iemand anders op papier sit ’n lied te laat word. Jy kan dit dan na net soveel meer plekke vat.”

Sewe jaar ná Reis na die suide is Wat ek wou sê by die pas afgelope Oppikoppi-fees bekend gestel.

Adding a whole lot of taste and really pretty songs: please welcome back for the first time in almost ten years Laurinda Hofmeyr. Launching a brand new CD with the help of OppiKoppi records and kykNET. Don’t miss one of the classiest acts you will see at Oppikoppi Festival.

Laurinda by Oppikoppi

Laurinda is by twee besondere Woordfees-produksies betrokke naamlik Prisma en Katalekte. Verder word daar ook ‘n onderhoud met haar gevoer by die RSG Plataankafee (13 Maart, 13:30) waartydens sy een van haar toonsettings sal uitvoer.

Prisma
Prisma Korrek FBSamestelling en regie: Marí Borstlap

Met onder meer Laurinda Hofmeyr, Wilken Calitz, Schalk Joubert, André Terblanché, Winand Grundling, Antoinette Louw, Johann Nell en Koleka Putuma

‘n Multi-dimensionele woordkunsproduksie waarin uitgesoekte gedigte deur gevestigde en nuwe Suid-Afrikaanse digters op verskillende wyses verken en aangebied word. In dié op-windende projek is daar kreatiewe vertolkings deur bekende stemkunstenaars, gevolg deur musikale interpretasies deur van ons beste musici (as toonsetting of as komposisie), asook ‘n reeks gedig-kortfilms.

Katalekte

Katalekte vorm ‘n drieluik met Breyten Breytenbach se vorige twee bundels, Die windvanger en Die beginsel van stof. In 2013 het Breyten ‘n keur uit die bundel saam met Schalk Joubert, musikale verwerker en komponis, opgeneem – ‘n beeldskone, hipnoties musikale reis van woord en klank wat jou nader aan die rykheid van die taal bring. Joubert sit nou hierdie reis voort, met die meesterlike perkussiespeler Ronan Skillen, Laurinda Hofmeyr op klavier en Toast Coetzer, Vicky Davis, Danie Marais, Nicole Holm en ander gerekende digters en akteurs wat die vertolkings en voorlesings behartig.

8 Maart 13:30 | kykNET Fismer| 70min | R100. Bespreek by Computicket.

Laurinda is in die proses om ‘n nuwe CD op te neem. Hou hierdie nuwe webwerf dop vir meer inligting. Intussen kan jy gerus hier gaan rondsnuffel en al haar musiek, foto’s en videos geniet.
