Album title - Angel Tongue
"Angel Tongue" is the powerful followup to 2002's "Who painted the moon"... steeped in country blues, Celtic, folk, pop ballad and even a touch of R&B on the first single "Life". Nianell's swooping three and a half octave vocal range is the thread that binds this remarkable album together. "Angel Tongue" is a heavenly eclectic record that more than justifies Nianell's reputation as South Africa's finest singer-songwriter.

Cofield Mundi
Album title - Ceremony
It's probably not fair to make comparisons in the world of music as each artist is unique in their own way but Cape Town based Cofield Mundi sits astride the same frontier blazing plateau as Suzanne Vega, Natalie Merchant, Sharleen Spiteri and Carol King. "Ceremony" is one helluva debut album, one that most artists spend a lifetime trying to achieve… from the opening starkness of "Leave the bones" it's clear to the listener that they are in for something special.

Album title - The Times
With a combination of strong hooky songs, strikingly emotive voice and powerful performances, David Aldo's debut album 'The Times' sets him well apart from most singer songwriters in the global market. From the acoustic pop meets hiphop groove of "What a fine day", through the hauntingly gentle "Could've been" and the fragile "Someday", to the upbeat chartbound rock anthem "Someone's kissing" the album is a timely reminder that there is still beautiful music in a world of noise.

Album title - Blk Sonshine
Blk Sonshine are unarguably the most exciting new group to emerge from Africa in the past decade. They blend melodic and sometimes percussive acoustic guitars with hiphop,jazz,and folk influences as well as a huge helping of soul from their African motherland. The result is emotional music that owes no allegiance to any one culture but instead combines and then enlarges musical boundries. Take a listen to "Born in a taxi", "Building","Bahlalefi" and "Melting in the rain".
