ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
KAROO KITAAR BLUES, is David Kramer's musical journey into the heart of the Karoo, in which he introduced audiences to several talented and eccentric musicians from that part of the world.
Tokas Lodewyk is from Richmond. He plays percussive Karoo blues, and his "Karoo choreography" is a blend of the Khoi San and Scottish reels.
Hannes Coetzee, plays the optel-en-knyp style with his right hand and slides out the melody gripping a teaspoon in his mouth. Siena and Jan Mouers from Victoria West and Lena Nuwegeld of Beaufort West, sing their plaintiff songs of hardship and loneliness.
Kramer first met these guitarists during the filming of a documentary called Langpad made by Jan Horn last year, in which David was the presenter. David and Jan travelled extensively through the country interviewing many outstanding guitarists, mainly living in small impoverished communities. David was so struck by their guitar styles, that he decided to present some of them in a showcase concert at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees in 2001. It received an ecstatic response from audiences, sold out shows and the musicians received the De Kat Slurpie Award at the festival.
In Karoo Kitaar Blues David also performs his own Karoo Blues, singing new songs written especially for this production. He is joined on stage by his band's longtime lead guitar virtuoso Gammie Lakay. Howard Links plays bass and Danny Petersen completes the rhythm section on drums.
Karoo Kitaar Blues is uniquely South African, evokes both tears and laughter and has been enjoyed by thousands of people all over South Africa.
