Dit is die 100ste geboorteherdenking van Elisabeth Eybers (26.02.1915 - 01.12.2007). Elisabeth Eybers sou op 26 Februarie 2015, 100 jaar oud geword het.

“Poësie is ’n eensame besigheid, maar dit het die vermoë om mense nader aan mekaar te bring en om hul wesenlike verwantskap te bevestig.” [...] “Is dit verslawend om te dig? Dit word ’n gewoonte. Jy moet tog ’n oor hê vir taal soos musikale mense het vir musiek.” (E. Eybers, Die Burger, 14 Mei 2003)

Kunswerk: Marlene Dumas. "Elisabeth Eybers" 2007, olie op doek

Listen to the studio recording of the song "Een Meisje Loos" that Zenobia Kloppers performed for the Original Cast Recording, as lead female artist in "Ghoema" & "Spice Drum Beat: Ghoema". http://youtu.be/Lvssq9Omjbg

"Daar was laatst een meisje loos
Die wou gaan varen, die wou gaan varen
Daar was laatst een meisje loos
Die wou gaan varen als lichtmatroos"

Luister naar dit lied, "Daar was laatst een meisje loos", uitgevoerd door Zenbobia Kloppers, op de Ghoema CD en live opgenomen. "Om te kunnen gaan varen verkleedt een meisje zich als man en neemt als matroos dienst op een schip. Tijdens een storm blijkt het door haar verrichte werk niet naar behoren te zijn uitgevoerd, reden waarom ze ter afranseling wordt ontboden in de kajuit waar ze zich gedeeltelijk moet ontkleden. Als vrouw ontmaskerd maakt ze van de nood een deugd door haar kunne aan te wenden om de straf te ontlopen. Dat levert haar behalve de kapitein als wettige echtgenoot in spe ook nog een jong matroosje op."

GHOEMA was the last musical created by David Kramer with his long-time musical partner Taliep Petersen. This multi-award winning production, which has enjoyed repeat seasons in Cape Town and Johannesburg and been performed internationally, celebrates and explores our musical heritage. Delving deep into early South African history at the Cape, the revue explores the roots of slave music as far back as 1650 - 1795, the heyday of the mighty Dutch East India Company which had an enormous influence on the lives of all people under its rule. The slaves that the Company brought to the Cape from countries as far as Indonesia, India, Madagascar, and Java had an enormous impact on the settlement here. They influenced a cross-pollination of lifestyles, music, language and culture between themselves, the indigenous people, the Dutch and other European settlers. The fusion of all these influences into something that is uniquely South African, is the inspiration behind GHOEMA. (A ghoema is a drum made from a small wine vat, with a skin stretched tightly over one end. It was created by the slaves and is still used today.)
