Maarten Van Ingelgem (°1976) took his inspiration from the African Lamtietie Damtietie. The author of the text, Cornelis Jacob Langenhoven (1873-1932), is regarded as one of Africa’s best-known writers and, as a member of parliament, campaigned tirelessly for Afrikaans to be an official language in South Africa. The poetic text was expressed in an evocative contemporary lullaby for a children's, youth or women's choir that is not intimidated by chants and whistles. Dedicated to Ida & Ellis, daughters of Van Ingelgem.
