Tune Me What? takes a look at an incredible album featuring 36 different South African artists who have turned the poems of the late Ingrid Jonker into songs. We play a few selections from the album in-between our usual banter and even manage to slip in some facts and information. So, after the show, keep an eye out for “Die Kind Is Nog Jonger”, a double-CD introducing one of South Africa’s most famous poets to a new generation.
In this episode we feature:
- Nelson Mandela
- Stefan Strydom and Gert Vlok Nel
- Robbi Robb and Amritakripa
- Falling Mirror
- Ivan Kadey
- The CapTn feat Julie Hartley
- The McClones
- Inge Beckmann
- The Sighs of Monsters
- Radio Rats
- Kalahari Surfers
- Michael Flek
