I listen about Harmonica and South Africa, I first think about Adam GLASSER
and Dave FERGUSON.
But I don't forget about my friend Japie Goosen who is among those who help the
harmonica lovers to find more and more places to share their interrest
in RSA !
I love all these initiatives that help more and more people again to
discover about this little but magic and fabulous instrument... So I
hope lots of people who have friends in RSA, can read this small
article, and share the
with their friends... I know Japie, that I met several times, at the
NHL festival taking place in Bristol, and I am
confident in what he is doing with this blog that I recommand to you.
The success is in the attention of the people to the effort. Hopefuly
sometime we can have a harmonica festival in South Africa...
If you already spent time on it, you noticed some link to a map of harmonica lovers from RSA... That's the
begining so people have to know about it to add themselves on it. Paul
Lassey did the same in France (for
France), and the result was quite useful... Also this Facebook link that I recommand. Lots of countries
have their pages with things more local to their country to organize
events, meet other people, propose workshops, ask questions etc...
The goal of harmonicacontact
is to capitalize lots of links about harmonica around the world; but
the interest is that you search around and discover more again. So I
hope lots of people follow Japie and his blog and to
see more and more harmonica players from RSA...
