The Documentary " 'n tydsdokument van onskatbare waarde" - E Grundling, Litnet
In 2001 David Kramer presented a show called Karoo Kitaar Blues that made South Africa sit up and take notice. It was a concert presenting the eccentric guitar styles of the Karoo the unique finger-picking and tunings of a marginalised people who live in remote villages and outposts of the of the semi-desert areas of South Africa.
"Karoo Kitaar Blues" - the documentary - follows David Kramer on a journey through the Northern Cape where he hopes to find another 'blikviool' player and new musicians whose instruments and songs are still unrecorded.
Hannes Coetzee and David Kramer recently returned from Port Townsend, USA where Hannes was invited to participate in teaching slide guitar at a Slide and Steel Guitar workshop during June. David accompanied him as teacher, performer and translator!
