Opinion Pieces by South African Thought Leaders:Penguin. 1. Auflage Max du Preez
How to Write about Africa: Practical Analysis on Key Aspects is a book that prepares you for the task of writing about Africa and African subjects-matters. Writing about Africa is not a difficult task, it is, however, usually thought of as simple, too simple, since Africa as a whole has been treated as a giant monolith. This oversimplification of African issues has misled many into churning out articles that misrepresent Africa, insults Africa and, ultimately, misinforms their audience. Drawing from a plethora of columns, scholarly and journalistic texts, events and instances, Joel Okafor sets out to accomplish two things with this book. One, this book debunks so many of the long-held notions on Africa as related to sources and statistics; two, it mentions specific African issues and discusses how to and how not to write them. While this book is primarily targeted at people who desire to write about Africa but reside outside Africa, it is, equally, a useful piece for people who just want to read about Africa and for Africans who aspire to write a piece relating to the whole continent. Wherever you are and for whatever purpose you read this book, you are assured of a book that will give you fresh insights and endow your writing with a richer, stronger edge.

Ulla in AfricaHeiner Wiberny has written this joyful composition for his wife Ulla, who has a special affinity for African Music. The listener recognizes immediately the sound and flavor of African Highlife and Latin Funk.The composition consists of the following parts:chorale-intro, prelude, ABA-theme, transition, violin- and violasolos with ´break´-intros, prelude, AB-theme, Coda.The soloists may play either the written transcriptions or their own improvised solos, whereby the corresponding ensemble sections can be repeated. The phrase markings offer help in the correct stylistic interpretation of the piece, but they can also be changed according to the individual preferences. Klaus the fiddler (Klaus der Geiger) gave the world premier of this work with the String Quartet of the Cologne Kunst-Salon Orchestra (Streichquartett des Kolner Kunstsalonorchesters). Klaus and the string quartet deserve my special thanks.Nombre de pages :24

South AfricaFor Bb soprano saxophone or clarinet and viola or Eb alto sax South Africa was originally written to feature the texture of the soprano saxophone with viola, the performance can be adapted to other instruments as indicated on the score or others within the written range. Although the piece is not specifically by African music, it is dedicated to Nelson Mandela upon his release from prison. The writing alternates between counter and synchronized lines - the same is true for other pairings such as dissonance/consonance, changing tempos and dynamics. The challenge is to get the piece to flow through these many shifts of texture. Towards the conclusion there is some space (optional) for improvising using the suggested written notes and intervals as the source material for both instruments. Medium advancedNombre de pages :48
