Songs of South Africa: Sung in Afrikaans

Songs of South Africa: Sung in Afrikaans

Born in a small sheep farming town in South Africa, Shimon Ash had little entertainment other than singing with his family. Thus began his musical career, which he developed in Europe, Israel, and Canada. Here, Ash performs upbeat songs of love and humor, playing guitar and backed up by Peter Weldon on banjo. Liner notes include a biography, track notes, and lyrics in English and Afrikaans.
