Leon is an award-winning guitarist and BAKENLIG promises to not only tug at the heartstrings and show a whole new side of Leon as a brilliant vocalist, but to also secure this talented musician’s place in the South African music industry.
The music video was directed and produced by Fritz de Jager of Bottomside Studios and filmed in Pretoria and Delmas over a period of three days.
“With the song, I deliberately tried to create something that is ‘comfortable’ to listen to, while still being poetic. I hope that people will be touched on an intellectual and emotional level when listening to my music,” he says.
“BAKENLIG is about returning to that which anchors your life. It can be applied in different contexts, but in this case, it represents a physical place that you value. All of us, however, also have emotional and spiritual ‘beacons’,” says Leon about this alternative track, which introduces his singing talent to the country. “I co-wrote the song with Jattie de Beer. Our past (history) falls within a specific context, which shapes our thoughts and thought patterns to a large extent. To return to that place, that anchor or beacon (whether physical or spiritual), is important in order for us to move forward.”
