Ingrid Jonker is one of South Africa’s most celebrated (and tragic) poets.
With the 50th commemoration of her untimely death in 1965 (committing suicide by drowning), her daughter is spearheading an exciting music project to not only reinvigorate Ingrid’s timeless words, but also preserving it via a wide range of artists and their brand new song recordings exclusive to this collection.

Ingrid Jonker’s passion, humanity, expression and grasp of language speaks volumes across many divides, with her words still as relevant and moving today:

> Nelson Mandela read from her poem “Die Kind” (The Child) and talked about her during his address at the opening of the first democratically elected parliament on 24 May 1994;

> The success of Chris Chameleon’s first Afrikaans album “Ek Herhaal Jou” consisted entirely of lyrics from her poems and contributed to its success and having him break into that market (2005);

> “Black Butterflies” is an acclaimed international autobiographic film on her life, released in 2011;

> 2015 one of the seven footbridges crossing Nelson Mandela boulevard in Cape Town were named after Ingrid Jonker –

> 2015 and 2016 has seen various plays linked to Jonker, and “Vlam In Die Sneeu” (Flame In The Snow) was published, a book containing the love letters between Ingrid Jonker and acclaimed writer André P. Brink.

Ingrid’s daughter Simone and her husband Ernesto Garcia Marques of Sound Action, conceived a musical dedication to Jonker with this compilation of musical adaptations by a wide range of hand-picked South African and international artists, titled “Die Kind Is Nog Jonger” (The Child Is Still Younger).

Ingrid Jonker (1933 – 1965) is die skrywer van drie digbundels:
Ontvlugting (1956), Rook en Oker (1963) en die posthume Kantelson (1966). Kantelson (1966) is saamgestel deur Jack Cope en is ‘n sameflansing van gedigte geskryf voor haar tragiese dood in die see by Drieankerbaai en het verder ‘n paar ouer gedigte uit ‘n vroeër periode.

Ontvlugting (1956) bestaan hoofsaaklik uit Opperman-tipe gedigte gewoonlik in paarrym. “Ontvlugting” is die mees bekende gedig uit die bundel en bevat ‘n aantal temas wat algemeen in haar poësie voorkom en uiteindelik ook vooruitwys na haar eie dood in die see. Na ‘n reeks vereenselwigings met ‘n hond en ‘n seevoël wat beeld word van die spreker se alleenheid en eksistensiële honger word sy uiteindelik as “lyk” in die see by Gordonsbaai uitgespoel (In haar lewe het die digterres by Drieankerbaai verdrink.)

In Rook en Oker (1963) word in Surreallistiese verse soos “Swanger Vrou” die temas van spel, regressie, vereenselwiging en die dood verder voortgesit. In “Die kind wat doodgeskiet is deur soldate by Nyanga” word die kind paradoksaal nie net beeld van die dood nie, maar word die kind ‘n reus wat “reis deur die hele wêreld” sonder ‘n pas. Die gedig het belanrike beeld geword van die verset teen Apartheid.
In haar laaste bundel Kantelson (1966) word die tematiek van die dood verder gevoer in die oënskynlike religieuse gedig “Op die pad van die dood” waarin die eenwording van teenoorgesteldes “Christus” en “Judas Iskariot” verenig in die eie dood van die spreker wat “gedaal” het “tot die uiterste klankbodems van God.” Taal, lewe , dood smelt alles saam in die “werkwoord van die liefde, Judas Iskariot”

Die gedigte in Kantelson (1966) wat nadoods verskyn het en ongelukkig nie deur haarself saamgestel is nie, bevat gedigte wat verband hou met haar verhoudings met André P. Brink en Jack Cope. Die gedigte word dan meestal opgedra aan of André of Jack soms aan altwee: Soos “Ook mos mens” dit stel “hy’s net ‘n ander vorm/ van jou my bokkie”
Van die gedigte in Kantelson (1966) is gestroop, bestaande uit een woord of twee woord-reëls, met verwysings na Spanje waar sy gereis het met André P. Brink Daar is verder gedigte wat haar finale ontnugtering met die lewe uitspreek:

en vergeet asseblief
van geregtigheid dit bestaan nie
van broederskap dis bedrog
van liefde dit het geen reg nie

    The poem which stopped me in my tracks though, was ‘Die Kind’ by Ingrid Jonker.
