Lesley Rae Dowling
State of grace
Adult • Eng • Commercial
Director: Schalk Joubert • With Lesley Rae Dowling
State of Grace is Lesley's eleventh album. The title track sets the scene: a haunting low Celtic whistle accompanies her in an introspective assessment of fulfilled womanhood where she declares: "So I've reached a state of grace, with my needs thus disappearing, still savouring my needs, things have come around." Since she first appeared on the scene with the hit single The Spaniard in 1981, this multi award winning singer/songwriter has released more than 10 albums. Awards include the Sari award in 1982 for best female singer, and SAMA Best adult contemporary female album awards for Unbounded Waters in 1993 and clear in 1999.

Navy Red (features Steve Homey songs)
Resin • Afr en Eng • A Capella
Met Navi Redd (regie/skrywer), Dean Kemp, Hanna Zeeman, Claude Norval, Dawie de Villiers, Frits Engelbrecht, André van Wyk, Schalk Board, Hennie Meyer en HP Toerien
Mans wat a capella sing is nou eenmaal nie 'n lelike ding nie... Dié rebelle van a capella buig alle reëls en regulasies. 100% testosteroon, 120% talent, iets vir die oog, iets vir die oor... Geen musiekinstrumente, geen back-tracks. Maak reg vir 'n wilde rit van klank, humor, oorspronklikheid en vermaak. A capella-musiek sal nooit weer dieselfde wees nie... Navi Redd is 'n a capella-groep met 'n kinkel en sing enigiets van die Beatles en Beach Boys tot André Schwartz en Steve Hofmeyr. Sedert die groep se ontstaan begin verlede jaar was hulle reeds ATKV Crescendo finaliste, B on MNET finaliste en deel van 'n Richard Loring opvoering wat verlede jaar in News Cafés regoor die land opgetree het.
