Afrikaans music was primarily influenced by Dutch folk styles, along with French and German influences, in the early twentieth century.
Zydeco-type string bands led by a concertina were popular, as were elements of American country music, especially Jim Reeves.
Melodramatic and sentimental songs called trane trekkers (tear jerkers) were especially common.
In 1996 the South African Music scene changed from the Tranetrekkers to more lively sounds and the introduction of new names in the market with the likes of Nádine, Kurt Darren and Nicolis Louw.
Afrikaans music is currently one of the most popular and best selling industries on the South African music Scene.
The rise of the De la Rey phenomenon has thrust Afrikaans music back into the spotlight, but the discussion seems to centre on Chris Chameleon’s release of English and Afrikaans albums, Steve Hofmeyr’s ability to sell ridiculous numbers of CDs and that Boer general whose name rhymes with Power to their Songs.
