Reinhart Rymhard Gets Featured in Get Accepted Magazine

Raynard in Get Accepted MagazineOne of my best friends Raynard Stander (aka Reinhart Rymhard) was featured in the latest issue of Get Accepted – a magazine aimed at school leavers. Check it out here – Raynie is on page 44. I’m so glad the word about him is finally getting out there. In my opinion, he’s one of SA’s undiscovered diamonds – and that’s not just ’cause he’s a good friend. In fact, just yesterday someone I know was raving about how Raynie’s performance at Stellenbosch’s Heritage Festival in 2012 was on the next level! This particular person’s mom thought he’s the best rapper/poet she’s ever heard.

Raynie is no newbie to this blog – the two of us collaborated on our first major festival performance last year for Woordfees (Word Festival) called Gemengde Oorsprong: Hemel in Aardse Kruike (Mixed Heritage: Heaven in Earthen Vessels). That show was an exploration of the human condition and “coloured” identity, which mixed various genres of music with spoken word. Check out this clip:

I also produced the music and artwork for Raynie’s poem As Ek Alleen Is. Have a listen:

One of my projects that I hope to complete this year is Raynie’s full length EP – just have to find and MAKE the time.
