about

A circle of swallows – Nibs van der Spuy

“The migration of the swallows flying North

Reminds me of a love that I once lost

Will the fountain of my sorrow someday fade?

I didn’t know the joy of love can bring you pain.”



These 17 handpicked, dreamy instrumentals and rural love songs represent a cross section of my recorded work over the past two decades. They are deeply rooted in the soil of my beloved Kwa-Zulu Natal, where the rolling, lush hills meet the Indian Ocean on the east coast of Southern Africa.

A few years ago, I spread my wings and migrated north, making a second home on the Lisbon coast of Portugal, but like the swallow, which travels thousands of miles every year between Africa and Europe, I will always return to my roots. In Portugal, swallows are symbols of romanticism, family, love and loyalty and also represent growth, time and new beginnings. I hope this anthology somehow embodies this and leaves you with a sense of home, as you journey to new frontiers and beyond.
