Gert Vlok Nel
Vlok Nel writes his lyrics in an unusual and innovative Afrikaans, comparable with, if anything, the language experiments of Antjie Krog. Vlok Nel paints a personal portrait of his childhood in Beaufort West, a rural part of South Africa with a predominantly poor-white population. His father was a railway employee. “Om te lewe is onnatuurlik” was followed by a CD, “Beaufort Wes se beautiful woorde”, an autobiographical sketch and a full-length show with poems, songs and visual material, which he has performed all over South Africa.
