We're joined by Alta and Minki, creators of Lollos and recent SAMA winners for best children's CD.
Lollos provides fantastic and unique entertainment for children in Afrikaans. Together with Alta Joubert and Minki Burger, this friendly character from Lalaland, ensures that all children across the country stay healthy and fit!
In Lollos season 3, a new funky character, Disco, makes an appearance. During their lively shows the characters encourage youngsters to dance and play along as they learn something new in a playful way.
Recently, the Lollos team also won a SAMA award for their second CD, Bons dat dit gons! So be assured that your children will be listening to the best quality Afikaans music around!
Alta and Minki are both moms and decided that there isn't enough modern, colourful and interactive entertainments for children in Afrikaans. Thus, Lollos was created in 2008 with the release of their first CD. The songs on the CD, DVD and shows are cheerful and funky, entertaining both young and old.
The DVD, Lollos 1: My naam is Lollos! Was released early in 2009. The second DVD, Lollos 2: Bons dat dit Gons! (Guest starring Emo Adams) was released in 2011 and recently went Gold!
Boem Boem, ons gaan Groen! Their 3rd album was released in April 2011 and the DVD will be available in October. It is also with great excitement and anticipation that they announced Robbie Wessels will be guest starring in this season, with his song, Skoert Vlieg!
The 3rd season teaches children about recycling and going green – as always through song and dance.
A book, Lollos se vlerke, is also available for avid readers. Lollos' friend can make sure they take him along on trips by purchasing a Lollos toy or T-shirt.
Lollos' shows are extremely popular and are sold out almost all the time. So make sure to purchase your tickets early!
