Mid February 2020 (Summer) New album : A year of Swimming - Derek Gripper
I thought of this title a few days before I remembered why it had been a year of water, usually cold water, sometimes extremely cold water. The water had been a medicine.

New Album: Griekwa Comet Choir Album
The Comet Choir, under the leadership of the Griqua Choral and Cultural Society, a collective of the Griekwa National Conference of South Africa, recently recorded an a cappella album of hymns. With the rising debate about nationalism and the skewed narrative of the indigenous peoples of South Africa the Griekwas are asserting themselves as amongst the first-nations people of South Africa. Their album is a rich tapestry of philological interpretations.
