This country crooner owes a lot to the likes of Roger Whittaker with a lazy style often referring to mother nature and his own beautiful, but troubled, country containing three additional original Afrikaans songs. Frequently ethnic sounding instruments evoke the atmosphere of this particular heartland and the smooth voice also captures a uniquely pure and untainted quality that is admirably genuine. However this may be too much of a stretch forthe imagination and prove a little insipid for most. This is an endeavour that may be perfectly sincere but would perhaps appeal to his own kinsfolk who may also prove to be somewhat older in their tastes.

I found CD's and DVD's in HOlland while I was visiting and I loved his music. I bought a few, Dezaaier and Spore inde sant. Could you provide us with the lyrics, we would appreciate it very much. Thank you and GOd bless. Sieneke Dykstra
