Boer Music Character

It is nearly impossible to put the rich variety of feeling elements, nuances and sounds that form the essence of Boer music into words. It is an "experience" of strong and unique character that cannot be described in scientific music terms. The concertina was, and still is, the top lead instrument in Boer music. Apart from the different types of concertinas that are found in Boer music, there are different dance rhythms and variations in accompaniment. It is striking how each artist often develops a unique and recognizable style, and equally amazing to see how the different types of concertinas and different geographical regions created divergent disciplines within Boer music.
