Kobus! 100% - Skuldgevoelvry
The chilled production of this album makes it much more digestible than their extremely weird stage act although this is still definitely for the alternative-loving crowd.

F***fpolisiekar - Lugsteuring
New generation punk. Recommended for those who like their rock 'n roll angry, loud and intelligent. Not recommended for those offended by bad language, or who enjoy easy-listening type stuff.

From rock to punk, to folk to funk, Afrikaans music is about so much more than just sokkie treffers - although those can be fun too. Here are the CDs we think you need in your collection.

Or maybe someone else needs them! Buy one for them. Being all locally produced, these CDs are well-priced compared to overseas albums - all under R100 at Kalahari.net. An awesome Christmas present for any South African music fan.
