David Kramer shares some favourite Cape Town spots
David Kramer answers some questions I asked him regarding some of his favourites in Cape Town:
Q: If you must choose only one of your songs that stands out as a favourite, which one will it be and why?
So Long Skipskop. Despite being a political song written during the dark days of apartheid it still speaks to people. A popular song with a message. (Ed - it's my favourite too!)
Q: As a child did you visit Cape town often? If you did what did you do here?
Came to visit family ocasionally. It was the early 1960s. Went to the Coimbra restaurant which, I think, was in Woodstock, to eat Mozambique prawns.
Q: If you had one day to show a friend from overseas something in Cape Town, where will you take him and why?
I’d take him to a klopskamer (Ed - a room where the participants prepare for the annual Cape Coon Festival) to experience the energy of an age-old tradition. And later we’d climb Lion’s Head to watch the sun set.
