THE STORY BEHIND:
Schoon is de West describes a desire to the country of origin. As it says "Never will I ever forget the West, Never even I travel around the whole world. No one can ever measure the love. Love dedicated to my country and my ground."
This song written by Frater Vedastus, Petrus Johannes Bleijs (18-09-1905 -- 22-06-1986), in the time of Dutch friars on mission in the West, has been sung from generation to generation on school. Now on Music from Bonaire.
