OPTOG! celebrates the modern songs of Afrikaans folk music with this original production!

Afrikaans music has come a long way since the Voëlvry – movement in the eighties. Koos Kombuis has traveled many miles since those sensational and meaningful campus tours that endeavored to free Afrikaans from its past. On this stage he discovers young artists, Herman Kleinhans and the Bottomless Coffee Band. Just like Koos many years ago, they are creating a new way and new guidelines with music and lyrics. Jorné van Huyssteen, former member of dDisselblom joins them with his experience crossing the country on many tours.
