Afrikaans Children's Folksongs

Afrikaans Children's Folksongs

Dr. Ora Dreyer sings “children's” songs in a broad sense: not only are the songs suitable for young children but also for older ones, as many of the songs are about courtship. She accompanies her high clear voice with a jazzy guitar, enhancing the underlying cheerfulness of the songs, many of which were originally sung at picnics and social gatherings. The Afrikaans language evolved from the Dutch spoken by the early Boers—the Dutch settlers in South Africa—during the 1700s, and it is still spoken in several countries in southern Africa. Dr. Dreyer's source for these songs is a book published in Pretoria between 1918 and 1921.
