Karin Hougaard’s rendition of the aria Vergin tutto Amor by Francesco Durante (1684-1755)
From her 2012 album ALIEN SKY
The children featuring in the video are from the small South African village Mautse, in the Freestate. This was not planned, or arranged. We saw these kids in an open field – playing with tattered home made kites constructed from old shopping- and garbage bags. These kites hardly took flight, but the kids’ joy was obvious.
Karin Hougaard would love to find a kite sponsorship of sorts for the kids from this village – if you have any suggestions please drop us a note here?
