Die ou bekende en geliefde FAK-sangbundel het in 2012 'n welkome aanvulling gekry. Liedjies wat die afgelope 40 jaar in Afrikaanse musiek geblom het, kry plek in die nuwe Volume II. Hierdie nuwe sangbundel maak plek vir 400 liedjies wat geskryf en gesing is sedert die vorige uitgawe van 1979. Vanjaar, 2012, is ook die 75ste bestaansjaar van die FAK-sangbundel en juis daarom is besluit om die wonder van Afrikaanse musiek behoorlik te vier met die uitreiking van 'n nuwe sangbundel. Die nuwe rubrieke sluit in: Immergroen &populêr; Kleinkuns; Kinderliedjies; Geestelike liedjies; Tradisionele liedjies; Kunsmusiek en Koormusiek.

Van die gewildste en bekendste werke deur Afrikaanse musieklegendes soos Rina Hugo, Gé Korsten, Chris Chameleon, Steve Hofmeyr, die Briels, Anton Goosen en Laurika Rauch is in die bundel vervat, met treffers soos 'Ballade vir 'n enkeling','De la Rey', 'Engel', 'Houtkruis' en 'Kinders van die wind'. Kenners van Afrikaanse musiek, soos Mimi Coertze, Wessel van Wyk, Anneke Lamont en wyle Christa Steyn was betrokke by die keuse van die beste uit die nuwere Afrikaanse musiekskat.

Die nuwe FAK-sangbundel vervang nie die ou bundel met sy bekende volksliedjies soos Aanstap Rooies, My hartjie, my liefie en Sarie Marais nie. Die nuwe bundel is eerder daarop gemik om die skatkis van Afrikaanse musiek wat bewaar moet word, uit te brei.

Benewens die rubriekindeling het die bundel ook 'n register volgens liedere se titels en eerste reëls.

'Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities ('It's a piece of cake! Just do four hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!'), I have decided to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand. The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I've recorded and can't wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child.
This certainly doesn't mean that I'm quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it's like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician.

From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughters… the list goes on.

I look forward to focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with much excitement.' - Dave Grohl

The amazing story of the American musician who was famous in South Africa and Australia, but unknown anywhere else... until the Oscar-winning documentary.

Like many South Africans in the seventies and eighties, Stephen 'Sugar' Segerman and Craig Bartholomew Strydom were obsessed with the music of Rodriguez, but the man himself was a mystery. Only his name was known, and the fact that he had killed himself on stage. After years of searching in a pre-internet age, the two men found the singer living in seclusion in Detroit. Remarkably, the blue-collar worker had no idea that he had been famous for over twenty-five years in this remote pariah of the world.

In 2006, Swedish filmmaker Malik Bendjelloul set out to find 'the best story on earth' and stumbled on this remarkable tale in the Guardian newspaper. He tracked down Segerman and Strydom, and so began his four-year-long quest to make the Oscar-winning documentary, Searching for Sugar Man.

Sugar Man: The Life, Death and Resurrection of Sixto Rodriguez outlines three separate journeys and the obstacles and triumphs that each presented: Rodriguez's struggle to make a life from music; the odyssey of two fans to find out what had happened to their hero; and Bendjelloul's pursuit to bring the story to celluloid.

The book is packed with information not included in the film, about Rodriguez's background, relationships and political activities, his tours to Australia, and the recognition that has finally come to him after the film's success.

Channel Kindness is a collection of fifty-one stories of kindness, bravery, and resilience from young people all over the world collected by the Born This Way Foundation and introduced by Lady Gaga. For Lady Gaga, kindness is the driving force behind everything she says and does. The quiet power of kindness can change the way we view one another, our communities, and even ourselves. She embodies this mission, and through her work, brings more kindness into our world every single day. Lady Gaga has always believed in the importance of being yourself, being kind to yourself and others, no matter who they are or where they come from. With that sentiment in mind, she and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world a kinder and braver place. Through the years, they've collected stories of kindness, bravery, and resilience from young people all over the world, proving that kindness truly is the universal language. And now, we invite you to read these stories and follow along as each and every young author finds their voice, just as Lady Gaga has found hers. Within these pages, you'll meet young changemakers who found their inner strength, who prevailed in the face of bullies, who started their own social movements, who decided to break through the mental health stigma and share how they felt, who created safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth, and who have embraced kindness with every fiber of their being by helping others without the expectation of anything in return.

Individually and collectively, the stories collected here prove that kindness not only saves lives but builds community. Kindness is inclusion, it is pride, it is empathy, it is compassion, it is self-respect and it is the guiding light to love. Kindness is always transformational, and its never-ending ripples result in even more kind acts that can change our lives, our communities, and our world.

In die motto van hierdie reeks liedtekste vra Amanda Strydom: 'Moet ek skryf oor die liefde / Moet ek skryf oor politiek / Oor die menslike kondisie / Oor ons blou planeet se siek?' Dit is ook dan juis wat sy doen - haar vlymskerp lirieke ondersoek hierdie temas op 'n meesterlike wyse. Alhoewel Amanda op die verhoog 'n onvergeetlike belewenis is, bewys Kaalvoet dat haar woorde selfs sonder musiek 'n slag kan slaan.

As one of the most celebrated musicians of our time, Alicia Keys has enraptured the nation with her heartfelt lyrics, extraordinary vocal range, and soul-stirring piano compositions. Yet away from the spotlight, Alicia has grappled with private heartache over the challenging and complex relationship with her father, the people-pleasing nature that characterized her early career, the loss of privacy surrounding her romantic relationships, and the oppressive expectations of female perfection.
Since her rise to fame, Alicia's public persona has belied a deep personal truth: she has spent years not fully recognizing or honoring her own worth. After withholding parts of herself for so long, she is at last exploring the questions that live at the heart of her story: Who am I, really? And once I discover that truth, how can I become brave enough to embrace it?

More Myself is part autobiography, part narrative documentary. Alicia's journey is revealed not only through her own candid recounting, but also through vivid recollections from those who have walked alongside her. The result is a 360-degree perspective on Alicia's path: from her girlhood in Hell's Kitchen and Harlem, to the process of self-discovery she's still navigating.

In More Myself, Alicia shares her quest for truth: about herself, her past, and her shift from sacrificing her spirit to celebrating her worth. With the raw honesty that epitomizes Alicia's artistry, More Myself is at once a riveting account and a clarion call to readers: to define themselves in a world that rarely encourages a true and unique identity.
