Order Bacchus Nel's debut album In Die Arms Van Die Nag - from

In Die Arms Van Die Nag - Bacchus NelThe Pretoria singer Bacchus Nel's debut album: In die arms van die nag (In the Arms of the Night), is now available. This twelve track work was recorded and completed with the able assistance of Lanie van der Walt (from Not my dog and Wolmer Records) and popular blues-rocker Piet Botha.

According to Theunis Engelbrecht (a well-known music journalist), Bacchus Nel is one of just a few new names who are rapidly changing the face of Afrikaans music like no-one has done before. Engelbrecht also states that Bacchus Nel is singer who enchants listeners with stirring poetry and music. Engelbrecht says that in some circles people are referring to him as the Gert Vlok Nel of the new generation.

Bacchus Nel's vivid writing style as well as his sensitive introspection makes this so much more than an album full of "braaivleis music". The hypnotic effect of this young singer becomes clear and in spite of Botha and Van der Walt's influence, he firmly leaves his mark on the music.

Friends and comrades that perform regularly with Bacchus Nel is Riku Lätti, Albert "the Wolfman" de Vos and the poet Kabous Verwoerd.
