Rymklets met Jitsvinger op Jeugdag

BY 07.06.17

DIE gewilde rymkletser Jitsvinger kom met woorde toor by die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument (ATM) se Jeugdag-viering op 16 Junie 2017 by Klein Nederburg Sekondêre Skool in die Paarl.

Jitsvinger is die gasspreker en sal ook ‘n kort werkswinkel oor rymklets in Afrikaans aanbied.  Die gratis program vind van 10:00 tot 12:00 plaas. Dit sluit ook ‘n optrede in deur die plaaslike rymkletsgroep Getuie$, asook ‘n oopmikrofoonsessie (waarvoor belangstellendes vooraf moet inskryf). Die plaaslike radiostasie, Radio KC 107.7FM, saai die program regstreeks uit.

Die uitvoerende kunstenaar Quintin Goliath, beter bekend as Jitsvinger, is 'n gevestigde skrywer, komponis, opvoeder en musikant van die Kaapse Vlakte. Hy beskryf homself as ‘n “multifasetkunstenaar met hope kreatiwiteit en 'kultuur' te spaar”. Hy het onlangs teruggekeer van sy tweede Nederlandse toer, hierdie keer met die musikale teaterproduksie “South African Road Trip: Celebrating Life”. Jitsvinger werk tans aan sy tweede album ná die suksesvolle afskop van sy loopbaan met die vrystelling van “Skeletsleutel” in 2006. Hy is ook in Junie in Artscape te sien in “Smoortjies&Smoothies” met Mervyn Africa.

Volgens  Michael Jonas, die Direkteur van die ATM, wil die ATM met hierdie geleentheid die diversiteit van Afrikaanse musiek vier, veral onder jongmense. “Rymkletsers is digters in hul eie reg wat op ‘n byderwetse wyse jongmense bewus maak van die rykheid van ons taal en poësie. Ons is dankbaar vir ons mediavennootskap met Radio KC wat dié boodskap aan nog ‘n wyer gehoor versprei, ” sê Jonas.

Toegang is gratis, maar bespreking is noodsaaklik. Bespreek by Nkita Pietersen by 021 872 3441 of student@taalmuseum.co.za.

Rap with Jitsvinger on Youth Day

Popular Afrikaans rapper Jitsvinger will perform his word magic at the Youth Day celebration of the Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument (ATM) on 16 June 2017 at Klein Nederburg Secondary School in Paarl.

Jitsvinger will be the guest speaker and will also present a short workshop about rapping in Afrikaans. The programme starts at 10:00 and ends at 12:00. It also includes a performance by local Afrikaans rap group Getuie$, as well as an open mic session (with prebooking). The programme will be broadcast live by the local radiostation, Radio KC 107.7FM.

The performing artist Quintin Goliath, better known as Jitsvinger, is an established writer, composer, educator and musician from the Cape Flats. He describes himself as a “multi faceted artist with lots of creativity and ‘culture’ to spare”. He recently returned from his second tour of the Netherlands, this time with the musical theatre production “South African Road Trip: Celebrating Life”. Jitsvinger is currently working on his second album after the successful start of his career with the launch of “Skeletsleutel” in 2006. In June he will be on the Artscape stage in “Smoortjies&Smoothies” with Mervyn Africa.

According to Michael Jonas, Director of the ATM, the aim of the event is to celebrate the diversity of Afrikaans music, especially among young people. “Rappers are poets in their own right who can make young people aware of, and excited about, the richness of our language and poetry. We value our media partnership with Radio KC in order to convey this message to an even broader audience,” says Jonas.

Attendance is free of charge, but booking is essential. To book, contact Nkita Pietersen at 021 872 3441 or student@taalmuseum.co.za. The Taalmonument on Paarl Mountain is open to the public from 08:00 to 17:00 on Youth Day (last entrance at 16:30).
