Bok Van Blerk live

2007-06-27 14:03
So in the interests of letting you decide for yourself what you like, and what you don't, here are three songs by Bok Van Blerk, including the anthem itself.

Whatever you decide, don't raise your objections to your Afrikaans friends (even if they're musical.) Verligte though they may be, and whether they sing it with their hands on their hearts or with a bit of irony, it's bound to ruin the mood. You're better off waiting for everyone to finish singing it and having the chat when everyone's sober again.
