About us

This site collects messages, open releases and post previews from HA!News – the newsletter of myself, the HA!Man (Francois le Roux) and partner Joke Debaere – as we travel annually around Southern Africa, Europe and North America. We do performances, present workshops, create constantly and collaborate with various artists in different fields. We find ourselves operating in a more independent sphere, as we focus more on the flow of immediate and directly felt expression – through music, words, visual arts and multi-media. Our travels provide ample scope for reflection on issues of human import, stories of happenings along the way as well as day to day newsbits. We are based in Stutterheim, South Africa and welcome conversation.


Like many other artists, since March 2020 we are unable to perform or travel for the foreseeable future. Our main source of income now is our online subscription service. The previews and extracts on this site all refer to this. We would encourage you to at least give it a try, as a continuous and time-relevant source of emotional nourishment, creative inspiration and reflection.
