GY - Vakon'wana (1988)

Power/Genesis. POH5000
Producer: Thomas J Masingi (exec: Joseph Mathebula)
Engineer: Jan Smit
Recorded at: Takk Studios, JHB


Unknown band Gy put out this album of six great songs, catchy but a little old-fashioned for 1988, with equal doses of guitars and synths. Judging by the cover photo the band was a four-piece with three female vocalists. Lyrics in English and xiTsonga focus on subjects of love ('Handsome Man', 'My Sweet Baby', 'I Cursed the Day', 'Empty Sky').
