Nickname: 'Hartklopduette'


Currently resides in: North West, South Africa

Born 12-07-1979 in Potchefstroom South Africa

Hartklopduette, not only are they singing partners, but these two phenomenal people have walked a long road to where they are today.

Cinda have been singing from the age of 12, her father bought her first guitar and she entertained friends and family around camp fires and social events. She finished school in Witbank and she started working and got married at the age of 21. Cinda knew what her path held for her and she never stopped trying, she sang in bar’s and got the opportunity to share the stage with some big names in hopes of them noticing her. 2007 Cinda met late Donald Schlundt, they worked together writing and composing songs, of which “San Francisco Memory” is one, and has been recorded by Kimberly Bibb Mars and has also been signed by Night Sky Records. Dondald distribute demos made by Cinda all over to radio stations word wide and for four years the song “I’d be crazy” had airplay in Australia and New Zealand. Cinda shares the stage with big names in the industry, Lance James, Barbara Ray, Jody Wayne and many more. Three months after her third child’s birth Cinda met Dirk at the Drommedaaris festival in Mooinooi, and since then these two artists are inseparable. Cinda also recorded duets with Lance James and Clive Bruce.

Since a young age Dirk had been playing around with tape recorders, recording small programs, even doing the news out of the daily paper, and don’t forget the weather, he entertained his parents with his little radio programs. Being a singer has never crossed his mind. When he finished school he made music on weddings and in local pubs, then the sing-along started and public was encouraging him to start singing. Dirk met Hans Drommedaaris and they shared a stage on a regular basis. He worked on the mines where he had been retrenched and got a position as funeral undertaker in Thabazimbi. Dirk got involved with the community radio where he presented with his mentor Tobie Lambaard who passed away 2014. Dirk organised a family festival and invited Cinda for a slot, and there they discover that they have more in common as originally intended.

In 2009 they register a business CiDi Productions. This is a combination of their names, and they got invited to be extras in the movie Lollipop, they got deeper involved in the film industry and provided extras for 7de Laan, Binnelanders, Scandal, Generations, Winnie, Challenger Last Flight, Fanie Fourie se Labola and had the opportunity to meet, Gerhard Butler, Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore Jennifer Hudson and Terrance Howard, not to mention the South African actors. Cinda had the opportunity to entertain the cast in the filming of Winnie with a duet with Jennifer Hudson as humorous entertainment in a break. CiDi had supplied sets like Wild at Heart with extras, where Dirk entertained everyone in such a manner that he auditioned for a roll without knowing it, and got signed by Out of Africa production for the roll as an “annoying bar customer”. Dirk was also casted as Mr Jackson in High Roller and these to aspirant actors got the opportunity to work with Alfred Ntombela in Skhesheskeshe. Cinda got a part in a Netherlands movie as a boutique owner. With all these adventures they realized that music was far from the scene and they gave the business to Nhlanhla Ndlovu, a very good friend with a passion for his work, who is now sole owner, Nhlanhla did a name change to CiDi Actors and Modelling and is still going strong.
Focussing on music now, “Hartklopduette” was born, which means Heartbeat Duets. After many years Cinda caught up with an old friend Lienjie Bayman, president of the numerous gold medal winners, The Rodeo Girls, and she invites Hartklopduette on a regular basis to share the stage with the Legends, Lance James, Jody Wayne, Manie Jackson, Barbara Ray, Clive Bruce just to mention a few. Local newspapers rename this duet pair as the singing “night in gales” of the North West. They are involved in community projects and Old Age Homes all over South Africa.
Hartklopduet’s main goal is to visit every old age home in South Africa, they tour one week every month and visit two homes per day. Lodges and guest houses is very open in sponsoring this initiative with accommodation of which Hartklop is very thank full for.
