Afrique mon désir (with Laurinda Hofmeyr, Schalk Joubert, Chris Bakalanga (Freshly Ground) & Dea Kinzunga-Walo

Afrique mon désir (with a smaller ensemble)


The popular world music production, Afrique mon désir, performed by Laurinda Hofmeyr & the Afrique mon désir Ensemble and directed by David Kramer, blew audiences away in Paris, Bordeaux, Poitiers and Angouleme.  During its 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. 

Presented by the Cape Town Music Academy, this world class production debuted earlier in the year at the University of Stellenbosch Woordfees and the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK), where it received nominations for Best Group – Contemporary Music and Best Music Production. The show performed to full houses and had audiences and reviewers raving.

The album with the same title was then 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.

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).

For 2019 Laurinda plans to take a more intimate version of the show to smaller venues across the country. The Ensemble will be reduced to a group of two to four musicians depending on the size of the venue. As with the full size producton, a wealth of African poetry will be explored; from Francophone Madagascar to Mauritania, the Ivory Coast to Chad, and all the way back to South African shores with the Afrikaans poetry of Breyten Breytenbach and Antjie Krog. This literary feast will be combined with African inspired melodies, to produce an energetic multi-lingual production

If the venue permits, the animation films, created specifically for the show by the award winning Diek Grobler, will accompany the music. Some of these films has already won international awards and will make the production an unique audio and visual experience.

The smaller ensemble already had a very successful show at the “Tuin van Digters” in Wellington earlier this year.  The more intimate setting gives Laurinda the opportunity to share her picture of each poem,  involving the audience with her travels through the poetry and the poets’ worlds. In this way the language of music can be enjoyed, be it  in French, English, Lingala or Afrikaans...

The participating cast will include multi-award winning South African singer and composer, Laurinda Hofmeyr (vocals and piano), bassist and musical producer Schalk Joubert,  Chris Bakalanga from Freshly Ground (bass & vocals) and the beautiful Dea Kinzunga-Walo (vocals). Chris and Dea brings with them the languages and music of the Congo region.

Afrique mon désir explores themes of longing, displacement and a celebrated deep, shared connection between the African continent and its people.

 ‘For me, the Afrikaans title, Afrika my verlange, 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.
