Namakwaland

R 30.00

Namakwaland is sung in Afrikaans. Afrikaans is one of the 11 official languages spoken in South Africa. Afrikaans is a West Germanic language spoken in South Africa, Namibia and, to a lesser extent, Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe. It evolved from the Dutch vernacular of Holland.

Namakwaland is based on the poem by the same name by the South African Poet D.J. Opperman. This poem about the natural beauty of the Karoo and the creation of this landscape is an evocative and beautiful setting of this well-known poem. This work is perfect for a less experienced treble choir and is a wonderful addition to any concert program, be it sacred or secular.
