Josef Marais (pronounced "Mah-RAY") was raised on a sheep ranch in South Africa and took interest early in the local folk culture. But as a young man, he seemed headed for a career as a classical violinist. Marais played with the Capetown Symphony Orchestra and studied violin and composition in London, Paris, Prague, and Budapest. But it was his skill as a guitarist, coupled with his extensive knowledge of Afrikaans folk songs, that eventually made him famous. These early albums included Songs of Many Lands (1949), Josef Marais and Miranda (1950), Songs of the South African Veld (1952), and Marais and Miranda in Person (1955). Though most of their material was South African, the couple peppered their performances with various European folk songs. Later records like European Folk Song Festival (1960) and Nature Songs (1963) experimented with orchestral arrangements.
