NAMAKWA SANDS SONG

16-bit, 44.1 kHz .WAV

Spanning a number of weeks, the Namakwa Sands song was written and composed on assignment in September 2011, as part of a Corporate initiative to unite and encourage the diverse group of miners of the Namakwa Sands mine on the Western Coast of South Africa.

Following an extensive process of interviews and consultation, it was decided that the Original Ballad Version, needed a few more renditions.

Here is the Namkwa Sands song in all it's shapes and sizes..

Track Name: Namakwa Sands (Rock Version)
Daar waar die golwe breek
By Brand se Baai
Tussen eindellose heuwels wind-verwaai
Waar die vier seisoene soms daagliks swaai
Daar word die sand uit Nama-aarde opgelaai

By die eindpunt van jou spoor in suide-land
Kyk ek verlangend hoe Namakwasande brand
As ek dink aan wat jy hier en daar vermag
Is ek bly dat ek kan deel in hierdie dag

Namakwasand, jy het my hart
Ek deel jou drome en ons trane hand-aan-hand
Namakwasand, jy het my hart
Ek is deel van jou hier in Namakwaland
(Ek is deel van jou, Namakwasand)

My mense wag vir my, waar teer en stofpad kruis
Ek kom terug na nog 'n dag, by my tweede huis
As ek terugkyk oor die jare saam met jou
Dan is my droom van doerie tyd, die hier en nou

Ek kom elke dag na jou toe terug
Daar waar jy vasstaan teen die weste-lug
Hier's dit veilig, want jy's doelgerig
Jy gee meer as net jou aarde terug..

Namakwasands, you have my heart
I share all your dreams and tears, hand in hand
Namakwasands, you have my heart
I am part of you, here in Namakwaland
