Radio Kalahari Orkes
100 years behind, but still on the tracks
Direct from Slangfontein, South Africa.
Featuring the talent of IAN ROBERTS the Radio Kalahari Orkes has toured
the length and breadth of South Africa, Namibia and The Netherlands.
Fronted by actor Ian Roberts, performing a folk-rock pastiche of Traditional
Afrikaans with authentic acoustic instruments, their music stems from a
deeply rooted place, taking in Ghoema, Latin and Africana music and
anything else found lying around the dirt road.
The words, however, are focused firmly on the present. Their debut Album,
Stoomradio, went gold and was accompanied by the acclaimed Harry Kalmer
play, Die Vloek Van Die Strandjutwolf. This was followed by the SAMA
nominated 2nd album, Nagloper, the soundtrack of the Rian Malan play of the
same name and winner of the De Kat, Ramkat Award for best show at
RKO have been honored with a FAK - Prestige award for the excellent
promotion of South African folk music on the 20 th of April 2017.

guitars, pedal steel, dobro, trumpets, contrabass and gazoos.
