The Source of Sound

sat 5 nov 2016 22:00 

The Source of Sound involves the material, the movement and the vibration of which music arises.

The Cape Malays and Dutch song.

As Sinterklaas is drawing closer and many are preparing themselves for a hefty discussion about the alleged racist or colonial nature of this Dutch custom, it’s about time people realize that traditions and cultural heritage aren’t as black and white as both parties may think. A large part of the old Dutch song heritage for example are upheld by the Cape Malays of Cape Town, South Africa. Muhammadans and the offspring of political prisoners and slaves brought from Indonesia and other parts of Asia to South Africa by the East Indian Trading Company formed a close-knit community with Islam as the main faith and Dutch songs as a huge part of their music culture. A long time ago, in the fifties, Dutch composer and conductor Willem van Warmelo discovered this and he made sure the Suid-Afrikaanse Uitsaaikorporasie made radio recordings of the music of the Cape Malays. That’s what this Source of Sound of October 216 is about. You can enjoy songs like Twee koningskinderen, Op ’t sombere kerkhof, Oh Wreekaart, Wees Gegroet, Toen ek op Nederlands berge stond and Oh God verlaat mijn Nederland niet,  alternated by the Tango Turk and Cool Drink.
