RADIO KALAHARI ORKESRADIO KALAHARI ORKES (TRIO)

RKO se musiek strek van ‘n diep gewortelde plek, wat Ghoema, Latyns en Africana-musiek aanneem en enigiets anders wat langs die grondpad te vinde is. Die woorde is egter ferm op die hede.
Op akoestiese toerusting wat amper so oud is as hul leuse, speel die klank se geluid uiteen; Wynand Davel op viool, Barry Steenkamp en Ian op ou kitare en mondfluitjie, en die onmiskenbare streelstem van Ian Roberts.

RKO is op 20 April 2017 vereer met ‘n FAK – Prestige-toekenning vir die uitstekende bevordering van Suid-Afrikaanse volksmusiek.

The Radio Kalahari Orkes has toured the length and breadth of our land. No dorp they have visited will ever be the same again. But that’s a good thing. No, really. Except for Pofadder but we won’t talk about that.

Irreverent, toe-tapping music that smells and sounds like the veld and the rhythm of windmills on the dusty landscape. Music that is thick with the kick of mampoer! A little Rock ‘n Roll, Ghoema, Latin and Africana music in a rainbow fusion.

2 days in Plett at 2 superb venues with food and drinks to order. Woodfire pizzas and burgers at Mel’s Place, and a Mediterranean selection at Adi’s kitchen.
