JUDI - Wondering Stoney (1991)

Tusk, TUH26   
Producer: Tata Sibeko      
Engineer: Peter Pearlson          
Recorded at: RPM

 
Something completely different. Like Buddy Masango doing his country thang, Judi took a stab at the folk sound of Tracy Chapman. The result sounds closer to white acts like Little Sister, with tracks like 'To Be Somebody' not unlike contemporary Afro-pop star Zahara. Judi's vocals just can't pull it off though, despite being backed by a diverse line-up including drummer Isaac Mtshali (The Cannibals, Stimela, Harari) and Kevin Kruger (Kariba), with production by Tata 'TNT' Sibeko.
