Comments:

A powerful compilation from the soulful voice of Margaret Singana.Margaret has covered a number of classic South African rock tracks, including Freedoms Children's 'Tribal Fence', The Julian Laxton Band's 'Johannesburg' and Hawk's 'Orang Outang'.

She is probably most famous for 'Mama Tembu's Wedding' from 'Ipi 'N Tombia' and also the brilliant theme song from the Shaka Zulu TV series, 'We Are Growing' by Margaret Singana and Julian Laxton. This song went to number 1 in Holland in 1987.

Patric van Blerk wrote a few songs for her and also produced most of her albums. Trevor Rabin makes an appearance on some of her songs as well.

There are also some very strong soul songs on this CD including 'I Never Loved A Man' (sounds nothing like the Aretha Franklin song with the same title), Jimmy Cliff's 'Many Rivers To Cross' and Tammy Wynette's 'Stand Up Like A Man' (done in a reggae-style).

So if you enjoy strong female vocals with a touch of rock, a bit of Africa and a lot of soul, then 'Lady Africa' is for you.
