Afrique mon Desir met Laurinda Hofmeyr, Schalk Joubert, Chris Bakalanga & Dea Kinzunga-Walo


Laurinda Hofmeyr's Afrique mon désir is a masterpiece of music and Francophone poetry from Madagascar to Mauritania, the Ivory Coast to Chad, and all the way back to South African shores.
 
For 2019 Laurinda planned to take a more intimate version of the show to smaller venues across the country to share the stories and beautiful imagery behind each song and poem.
 
In 2018 this singer and pianist blew audiences away in South Africa, Paris, Bordeaux, Poitiers and Angouleme with her big stage production and album called Afrique mon désir. The album was picked up by French music label, InOuïe and in May 2018 it was released world-wide.  Established Bordeaux-based music critic, Bernard Jean, described Afrique mon désir as the best album he has heard in the last decade.
 
 During her tour in France, the production was embraced by the international media - Hofmeyr was invited to be a guest on the international news channel France 24’s prime time Eye on Africa show as well as the Parisian based TV Tele Sud’s Africa Hour show.  
 
In October 2018 the show had an exclusive run at the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town and was then nominated for a KykNet Fiesta (Best Music Driven Production – Theatre).
 
At  Die Boer, Laurinda will have the opportunity to once again team up with the exquisite singing talents of Chris Bakalanga (of Freshluground) and the gorgeous Dea Kinzunga-Walo from the DRC.  Chris's guitar playing, enhanced by the sound of renowned bassist and music producer Schalk Joubert will ensure that the groove and energy stays infectious.'

 
Afrique mon désir explores themes of longing, displacement and a celebrated deep, shared connection between the African continent and its people and Hofmeyr has a mesmerizing capability to take her audiences on this unique journey through the world of music and poetry. 
In this way the language of music can be enjoyed, be it in French, English, Lingala or Afrikaans...
 
‘For me, Afrique mon désir, contains a longing, an almost wistful nostalgia for a mythical place that may never have existed but is vibrantly present in the collective soul of poetry and music from Africa.’ – Laurinda.
