Chris Chameleon releases first Afrikaans album since 2009

This long-awaited album was inspired by Chris Chameleon's personal experiences with the search for and experience of love.

The texts of the songs are in most cases poems he wrote while he was smitten. 


During this time, Chameleon attended a concert by a classical Indian artist, Shujaat Husein Khan. He didn't understand a word of the hindi text, but the spirit of the music was so strong that even an Afrikaans man could understand the meaning of the words across the language barriers. 


Chameleon felt tremendously inspired by this experience and this is where the work on ‘Jy en Ek en Ek en Jy’ started. The result is a 12 track-album where the simplicity, respect, compassion and complexity of love found manifestation in the spontaneity of word and sound.
