    The iconic Afrikaans Language Museum and Monument's 45th festival year kicks off on Friday, 28 February 2020, with a booming night of rock and electronic music – brought to your ear drums by Akkedis Band and Die Heuwels Fantasties.

    First up is Akkedis’s Afrikaans rock, infused with African, reggae and blues sounds, to get everyone in the party mood. The Dennis-twins, Arthur and Rudolph, strummed their first chord at the age of 12 after being exposed to everyone from Neil Young to Bob Marley. When Adrian John Graham joined the group, their sound progressed into the timeless rock South Africans have known and enjoyed for over two decades. They average four shows a week and have no intention of slowing down anytime soon. Whether in Zulu, Afrikaans or English, there’s nothing these guys can’t do.

    Hot on their heels follows Durbanville’s Heuwels with their futuristic electronics, intertwined with subtle guitar elements and intelligent lyrics. Hunter Kennedy, Pierre Greeff, Sheldon Yoko and Fred den Hartog are revered for their unique music and their energetic live performances, and have gathered a large and wide fan base since their inception in 2008. The Heuwels has played at all the major festivals in South Africa and has shared the stage with notable international acts, including Kings of Leon. They have also toured to the Netherlands, Belgium and UK. Keep an ear open for their latest singles, released in December 2019.

    Beverage and food stalls as well as secure parking will be available; please remember to bring warm clothes and blankets. The concert starts at 19:00, but the gates open at 17:00 which gives visitors enough opportunity to take a closer look at this historic sculpture while the summer sun sets. There is also an outdoor exhibition of poems in the Groen Galery, children's playgrounds and beautiful views of the Cape Peninsula and Boland Mountains. Alas no fires, dogs and own food or drinks are allowed.

    Tickets cost only R150 for adults and R70 for children under 13. It can be purchased in advance at the Taalmonument on Paarl Mountain, at the Taalmuseum in Paarl (021 872 3441/863 0543) and online via Computicket (www.computicket.co.za). More on Die Heuwels Fantasties at www.dieheuwels.co.za and on Akkedis Band at www.facebook.com/AkkedisSA.

    Friday evening is part of a weekend-long festival of music, stories, children's entertainment and a market on the beautiful Paarl Mountain. There is also a fun walk, yoga, jazz and poetry class to ensure everyone enjoys celebrating one of Africa's youngest languages. The multilingual, multicultural program with amongst others Jak de Priester, Lungi, Jaloersbokkies and V.I.T.O will showcase Afrikaans in all its beautiful forms, reminding speakers and non-speakers of the unique, welcoming spirit of this plucky language. For details on the 2020 festival programme, see www.taalmuseum.co.za/festival-programme-1975-2020/

    The Taalmonument manages, among other things, a literacy project, 'adopted' a school in honour of Nelson Mandela and sponsors free transport to the monument. By simply attending the festival events, guests support the outreach programs, so a big 'Baie dankie!' in advance.

    Zen for body and mind between granite and wild olives
    Writer and yogi celebrate Taalmonument’s 45th festival with focus on the inner self

    The iconic Afrikaans Language Museum and Monument's 45th festival year reaches a creative Zen-like highlight on 29 February 2020 when well-known wordsmith Diana Ferrus and green-finger yogi Lizet Mulder team up to have everyone experience the meaning of 'Grounded in Africa' (‘Rotsvas in Afrika’) through words, poetry and guided stretches. ‘Green and Serene’ takes place in the Groen Galery, the outdoor gallery between the beautiful granite boulders and old wild olives, and promises to be a unique experience.

    According to the coaches this event, which is part of the Taalmonument's weekend-long celebrations, is a chance "to write, listen and recall our bodies' memories during this festival for a language of many shapes, colours and scents". Ferrus is an award-winning writer, storyteller and founding member of the Afrikaanse Skrywersvereniging. She is best known for her 1998 poem about Saartjie Baartman, which eventually led to the repatriation of her body from France to South Africa. Her third book, 'Die vrede kom later', was published last year. Mulder is an experienced Paarl yoga teacher (she has undergone training in India and Thailand, among others) with a background in landscape architecture. She brings together her love for people, stories, and the environment by hosting outdoor yoga classes where participants can exchange stories and play together to reach an inner calm.

    The activity starts at 10:00 and lasts until 11:30, but participants are free to take a break at any time. Participation is open to anyone with a day ticket for the day of music, stories, children's entertainment and a market on the stunning Paarl Mountain. There is also a fun walk, yoga, jazz and poetry class to ensure everyone enjoys celebrating one of Africa's youngest languages. The multilingual, multicultural program with amongst others Jak de Priester, Lungi, Jaloersbokkies and V.I.T.O will showcase Afrikaans in all its beautiful forms, reminding speakers and non-speakers of the unique, welcoming spirit of this plucky language.

    Die Jaloersbokkies - as Kaaps as breyani and koesisters, like ghoema and winter rains – will kickstart this event. These true ladies and gentlemen are dressed in outfits reminiscent of the 1950s, and perform nostalgic songs to boot. Next up is Vito Heyn, or V.I.T.O, a young rapper from Namaqualand that is rapidly gaining ground thanks to his original indigenous Nam-Afrikaans lyrics and out-of-this-world style. A first for Afrikaans. He his followed by Elias P Nel, who needs no introduction. This 'bek sonner brieke' is a superb storyteller that has everyone hanging on his every word with stories filled with bittersweet and exuberant humour. The Unknown Dance Crew is up next. Armed with gloves and masks, this group of crazy theatrical dancers have surprised audiences time and time again with their unexpected, fast-paced performances on the beat of original musical combinations. Truly unique!

    Last but not least, is Jak de Priester. Since this singer and poet's debut album, numerous number-one hits, accolades, awards, nominations and successful albums have followed - hear for yourself why 'Jak' and 'singing sensation' are often mentioned in the same breath.
    This event starts at 13:00, and is open to anyone with a day ticket.

Biografie van ’n taal' ('The story of Afrikaans: Out of Europe and from Africa. Biography of a language') takes place on Monday, 9 March 2020, at the monument.

    During this free event, the renowned co-author of the book, Prof Wannie Carstens, will be in conversation with well-known journalist Jean Oosthuizen. According to them, the aim is to stimulate a conversation about how Afrikaans's complete past should be told, and therefore they want to welcome as many people as possible to express their opinions as well.

    The book series 'Die storie van Afrikaans' is the biography of Afrikaans as it developed on three continents: in Europe (where the development of Dutch as the basis of Afrikaans is represented), in Africa (where the language/dialect in its unique socio-historical circumstances and under the influence of various African languages, including Khoi and San, over time eventually developed into fully-fledged Afrikaans) and from Asia (where the languages of the slaves influenced the developing Afrikaans to help create its present form). Book 1 presents the European past of Afrikaans; in book 2, the African past of Afrikaans is discussed.

    The books also take the form of a kind of biography - thus a visual explanation of what contributed to form Afrikaans as it is. An extensive range of illustrations help to illustrate this: numerous sketches and photographs of defining events that affected Afrikaans and its speakers, schematics and tables with statistics, indicating core publications on and in Afrikaans. Thus far, this has not been done in other books on Afrikaans.

    The book therefore attempts to present a comprehensive and inclusive history of Afrikaans. In this respect, the book is different from other books on the history of Afrikaans in that it looks at the past, the present and also the future of the language, and how all the speakers of the language (the full spectrum of Afrikaans speakers) played a role and also made a contribution.

    Carstens retired at the North-West University in 2017 as professor of Afrikaans linguistics. He served and serves on various bodies involved with Afrikaans, and co-founded the Ernst van Heerden collection of Afrikaans poetry in Belgium; he was also involved in establishing various cooperation and exchange agreements with universities and other institutions in the Low Countries. Carstens is a co-recipient of the CJ Langenhoven Prize for Linguistics from the SA Academy of Science and Arts. Oosthuizen is a respected journalist who has worked for the SABC, among others, and reports for various publications, including online.

    This free event, with snacks and drinks, commences at 18:00 for 18:30 at the Taalmonument on Paarl Mountain, and booking is essential. RSVP by 6 March with Elsabé Pearce at ontvangs@taalmuseum.co.za or 021 863 0543. The books will also be for sale.

    It’s Bullseye at iconic Taalmonument
    Stargazing picnic focuses on Taurus and its red eye

    Locals and visitors will get to know the glittering night sky – specifically the constellation Taurus with its distinctive red eye - better during a summer picnic on Paarl Mountain on Saturday, 22 February 2020. It promises to once again be a festive evening in the beautiful setting; in addition, a spectacular sunset and a free guided tour of the iconic sculpture is included, and the event is in aid of a good cause.

    Visitors can explore the starry skies with the help of Orion Observation Group (OOG) members who like to share their knowledge and telescopes for free. The theme is ‘Take the Bull by the horns' for the focus is northward on the constellation Taurus with its distinctive eye, the red giant Aldebaran. This reddish star is much older than our Sun and has exhausted all of its primary fuel supply, namely hydrogen. Two of the nearest open star clusters to Earth, the Pleiades and the Hyades, are also found in Taurus - both of which can be seen with the naked eye.

    The picnics are very popular with locals and overseas visitors who especially enjoy the beautiful views of the valleys, mountains and peninsula. It starts at 18:00, with a guided tour of the monument at 18:30, where-after visitors can stare into the skies from 20:00 to 22:30.

    Guests are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets or pre-order one (R300 for two people or R400 with a basket included) at the coffee shop on 021 863 2800. It will also be open for coffee and light refreshments as well as pizza. Safe parking is available and entry is controlled. Please remember binoculars and warm clothing. Visitors are encouraged to explore the area, and there are outdoor games and playgrounds for the children.

    The picnic series is in aid of 'Let’s Read!', the Taalmonument's literacy project for children, and therefore picnic-goers are requested to donate new or second hand children's books in support of this project. The entrance fee is R50 per adult and R10 per child; tickets are available at Computicket or the gate, but booking (021 863 0543/4809) is essential to ensure sufficient telescopes. Unfortunately, Stargazing picnics will be cancelled if the weather doesn’t play along - call 073 853 3100 or 083 544 6510 for weather inquiries. Pre-bought tickets can be transferred or reimbursed.

    For more information on all the other exciting events, concerts and courses at the Taalmonument (which is celebrating 45 years in 2020), call 021 872 3441/863 0543, visit www.taalmonument.co.za or follow them on Facebook. The next, and last, Stargazing picnic is on 21 March 2020.
