What is Boer Music?

Experts have pondered this question for years - it cannot be answered without a measure of controversy. The Traditional Boer Music Club defines it as instrumental folk music, dating from the period during which the people who practiced it where internationally know as "Die Boere" (The Boers) of South Africa. It is informal music that is played in a distinctive way and was primarily intended as accompaniment for social dancing. For the purpose of this conversation, we exclude other kinds of Afrikaans music from the same period like ballads, serenades and music aimed at passive audiences.
