Dear Friends,

The year is fast ending and Christmas is around the corner, but first we need to celebrate the highlights that the month of November has to offer.

To mention but a few important dates starting with November 11th - Celebrated in the U.S. as Veterans Day (formerly called Armistice Day) with parades and military memorial ceremonies. So will the Rhodesians also remember UDI .

In November the French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) was born in Paris. The Suez Canal was formally opened after more than 10 years of construction.

German Field Marshall Rommel (1891-1944) was born at Heidenheim, in Germany.  Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi (1917-1984) was born in Allahabad, India. She served from 1966-75 and later from 1980 -1984. the list goes on!

Last, but importantly, we would like to mention the reason for the existence of ROAN ANTELOPE MUSIC. The catalogue with 500 and more songs composed by our legend, John Edmond. He celebrates his birthday on the 18th November. John always says. “To be grateful for the things in your life isn’t something to think of occasionally. He believes people who practice gratitude are happier people, they are more satisfied, have lower stress and depression levels and is that not reason enough to count your blessings and more?”

Our team are truly blessed to have each and everyone of you out there with your support of our music, that’s what’s kept our legend going for 85 years! Indeed, a blessed career and with this we kick November off with John’s podcasts on his special “CHRISTMAS IN AFRICA” stories and songs…. Very interesting!

These Songs should be sung by each and every one that lives in Africa, they celebrate the spirit of Christmas, are happy, factual, fun and different.

Get your “CHRISTMAS IN AFRICA” now, on CD- or even on USB !
