What a awesum, amazing singer/songwriter! Much the same style as the legendary Leonard Cohen, but his songs r about love for women n sex, Rian Malan`s songs r about the heartaches of the country, and emmigrats. SIMPLY FANTASTIC.

Researching "Wimoweh" and hit on your amazing expose on the "fat cats" of the music industry!!! A fantastic effort on your part to unravel that complicated web of greed an deceit. EVERYONE mustlisten to Solomon Linda & the Original Evening Birds - "Mbube" a wonder of heart-felt love for one's culture an homeland. I LOVE IT
