JOE SILO - Praising Jah (1991)
Producer: T. Mkhize
Engineer: David Moloele
Smooth gospel reggae from this little known singer, heavily influenced by the likes of Lucky Dube and Jambo. Over the downtempo synth grooves, lyrics cover the spiritual ('Ever Praising Jah', 'Never Let Your Hands') and the political on tracks like 'Freedom', 'Long Time' and 'So Why':
Thunder in Ethiopia,
Freedom in Namibia,
Fighting in South Africa.
So why, so why,
So why why why won't you treat us like your brothers?"
