Straatligkinders is an Afrikaans Christian Rock band from Potchefstroom, South Africa.

History[edit]

Straatligkinders was formed in August 2006. Close to their first gig, they recorded four songs, and in December 2006, a music video. The video to “Die Beskermer” was then recorded in a factory in Potchefstroom and aired on MK89 in January 2007.

The band launched their EP launch in Potchefstroom, and later played at Thrashers Skate Park in Pretoria. From here on, visits to Pretoria and Johannesburg came weekly. In March 2007, Straatligkinders was entered into a wish list competition for Oppikoppi Easter. They won this competition on votes from the public and topped bands like Lark and Taxi Violence. This event was also broadcast on MK89 with a whole half an hour devoted to the Straatligkinders performance.

They also played at a children's festival in June 2007. In August 2007, Straatligkinders had their first tour to Cape Town and Stellenbosch. The following weekend saw the band play their first gig in the Free State.

“Gedagte vir die dag” was released in October 2007, when Straatligkinders released their first full-length album, Bloeisels, which is being distributed countrywide by Brettian Productions. This single was also available on the MK89 compilation CD which was distributed across South Africa from the beginning of October. The video to "Gedagte vir die dag" also spent 5 weeks at number one on the MK Top 10. Thus far the band has been on the Top 10 for fifteen weeks.

Straatligkinders released an album in 2008, Sweef soos 'n vuishou. In 2010, they are slated to play at the Oppikoppi festival and to release a new album.[2]
