...droom verder as grense...

Pop-rock adult contemporary ballad, lyrics in Afrikaans

droom verder as grense

almal het drome...
sommige drome bly drome
sommige drome verdwyn
sommige drome vlug
sommige drome weerkaats
sommige drome bly in die lug
sommige drome moes eerder drome bly
sommige drome...

Vat my hand

Single: pop-rock adult contemporary ballad, lyrics in Afrikaans

House of the rising sun

Vat my hand is 'n pop-rock ballade met lirieke in Afrikaans. Die styl is meer neo-Afrikaanse musiek as fabriekstyl.

Die lirieke is meersinnig. Op die oog af mag dit soos 'n liefdesballade klink. Maar die woorde kan ook anders geinterpreteer word... Jacques is al 'n woord virtuoso en woordsmit genoem.

Die single is in geheel deur Jacques geproduseer en uitgevoer: komposisie, orkestrasie en verwerking, en al die instrumentasie is op virtuele instrumente gespeel.

House of the rising sun

House of the rising sun, also known as Rising Sun Blues, is an old folk song known before 1905. It was sung by miners

The oldest published version of the lyrics was printed by Robert Winslow Gordon in 1925, in a column "Old Songs That Men Have Sung" in Adventure Magazine. The oldest known recording of the song, under the title "Rising Sun Blues", is by Appalachian artists Clarence "Tom" Ashley and Gwen Foster - 1933. Ashley said he had learned it from his grandfather, Enoch Ashley.

Mother Africa

Single

Short sample: MP3 1'20" 3.3mB; See the lyrics

Africa is the birthplace of homo sapiens sapiens. In South Africa there is abundant evidence for this. At the Blombos Cave near Jongensfontein in the western Cape some evidence is dated to between 70'000 and 100'000 years ago. Our distant ancestors who lived there were cognitively well developed. There are abstract geometric patterns on a piece of ochre - something animals such as our distant cousins, the primates, do not do.

Africa is our mother. But generally speaking things are desperate on our birth continent.
