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
