The Afri-Frans album is part of the Afri-series, which takes timeless Afrikaans songs of decades past and translates them into some of the more poetic European languages.
The series started with the Afri-Frans project, which was conceptualised by the formidable composer, pianist, producer and entrepreneur, Matthys Maree. His musical instincts were spot on, as the Afri-Frans album, recorded and released in 2010, went gold within two weeks and has since hit the platinum mark. These albums have gripped the South African public's imagination and are being passed on to family members living abroad.
Matthys Maree says about Afri-Frans, “By translating our favourite music into foreign languages, we breathe new life into our own culture, listen to the same stories with new ears and give new life to songs that have enriched our lives over the past few decades.” He also believes that people connect more with music, and that it brings back not only past memories, but actual feelings associated with those past moments. The Afri-series is a vehicle to that emotional connection.
Through music and words these masterpieces tell the beautiful tales of the Afrikaner’s visions, hopes, dreams, love and disappointments. Our every day stories are now being heard far and wide. The opportunities, it seems, are limitless.
