36-artist tribute double album

INGRID JONKER "Die Kind Is Nog Jonger"

In association with Simone, daughter of famed South African poet Ingrid Jonker. Sound Action and Flamedrop will be releasing an exciting double tribute album celebrating her work.

“Die Kind Is Nog Jonger” (The Child Is Still Younger) contains 36 artists adapting Jonker’s poetry specifically for this project, commemorating her tragic and untimely suicide 50 years ago.

This tribute album surpasses the inherent entertainment value, expanding to preserve Jonker’s legacy, her work, language, history and culture.

Jonker’s passionate poems are re-invigorated with a wide variety of musicians in a number of genres, from acoustic, pop and rock, to electronic, metal and more.

(All artists listed below)

The three dozen adaptations include popular and new artists, as well as legends, veterans, award winners, expatriates and beyond South Africa (incl. England, Germany, the USA etc.) It is also not strictly Afrikaans with several English translated versions included.

With all the songs of this independent release already recorded and supplied by the artists, all that remains is the physical CD & limited vinyl reproduction and marketing cost. For this purpose an Indie GoGo crowd funding campaign has been set up to involve the public. This is not a donation system, but an investment with many amazing perks attached to each contribution tier – from instant mp3 downloads and the double CD, to vinyl albums, “Flame In The Snow” books (love letters between Jonker & fellow writer André Brink), and original artwork from acclaimed artists Vernon Swart (whose amazing ocean scene appears on the album cover).

The IndieGoGo project ends on 13 April and can be viewed here : www.igg.me/at/ingrid-jonker (includes video links).

“Die Kind Is Nog Jonger”

36-kunstenaar huldeblyk dubbel album

In samewerking met bevaamde digter Ingrid Jonker se dogter Simone reik Sound Action en Flamedrop ‘n baie opwindende dubbel CD uit.

“Die Kind Is Nog Jonger” bevat 36 kunstenaars wat vir die 50ste herdenking van Jonker se tragiese dood haar gedigte getoonset het spesifiek vir hierdie projek.

Dit oortref die basiese vermaaklikheids-potensiaal in dat die versameling ook dien as bewaring van Jonker se legende, haar woorde, taal, geskiedenis en kultuur.

Jonker se passievolle gedigte kry nuwe lewe met ‘n wye verskeidenheid musikante in ‘n aantal style, van akoesties, pop en rock, tot elektronies, metal en nog meer.

(Alle kunstenaars word verder af genoem)

Die drie dosyn verwerkings sluit popule^re en nuwe kunstenaars in, asook legendes, veterane, pryswenners en bydraes van die buiteland (soos Engeland, Duitsland, die VSA ens.) Dit is ook nie slegs in Afrikaans nie, met verskeie vertaalde weergawes.

Meer informasie by: www.flamedrop.com/ingridjonker

Met al die liedjies van hierdie onafhanklik uitgereikte album reeds opgeneem deur die kunstenaars, bly net die CD vervaardiging en bemarking oor, en daarvoor het ons sopas ‘n Indie GoGo crowd-funding campaign opgestel wat die publiek betrek. Dit is glad nie ‘n donasie sisteem nie, maar ‘n belegging,met verskeie baie opwindende “perks” by elke bedrag opsie ingesluit – van mp3 liedjies aflaai en die dubbel CD en beperkte langspeel plaat eksemplare, tot “Vlam In Die Sneeu” boeke (met die liefdesbriewe tussen Jonker & André Brink), en oorspronklike kunswerke van die bekroonde Vernon Swart (wie se fantastiese oseaan-toneel op die CD omslag verskyn).

Die IndieGoGo projek loop tot 13 April en kan hier besigtig word: www.igg.me/at/ingrid-jonker (daar is ook video’s wat hierby betrekking hou).

Voorbeelde van al 36 liedjies kan hier gehoor word: https://youtu.be/XK8PoZw35Xw
