They recorded four albums: Third World Child (1987), Shadow Man (1988), Cruel, Crazy, Beautiful World (1989), Heat, Dust & Dreams (1993). The last album was nominated for a US Grammy Award for the best world music album in 1993.Read More...

- LyricsCopper sun sinking low
Scatterlings and fugitives
Hooded eyes and weary brows
Seek refuge in the night
- LyricsOne day I looked up and there you were,
Like a simple question looking for an answer.
Now I am the whale listening to some inner call,
Swimming blindly to throw myself upon your shore.
What if I don't find you when I have landed?

- LyricsThe world is full of strange behaviour
Every man has to be his own saviour
I know I can make it on my own if I try
But I'm searching for a great heart to stand me by
Underneath the african sky
- LyricsHawu! Bheka Mama! Oye!
Hamb'ugadile! (be alert and be on guard)
I feel a river in flood in my veins
I can feel your love in my brain
It wants to dance my life
