South African Christmas

Somehow we overlooked The Parlotones two years ago, but this project is too much fun to leave unmentioned. And besides, we don't have South African Christmas on the menu that often. The Parlotones hail from Johannesburg and are an indie rock band in everyday life, but in 2020 they were a Christmas combo during 12 songs.
Eight covers, including a very notable one by German schlager singer Udo Jürgens. The Parlotones turned 'Sänger in Ketten' into a Christmas song, sung in South African language: 'Kyk Hoe Glinster Die Maan' (See the moon shine brightly).
'Strike The Harp' became a surprisingly great album with four brand new original xmas tracks on top of that too!
