This album brings together songs by Garth about South Africa, Uganda, Mozambique, Sierra Leone and Kenya.

 

It includes songs such as “Dawn Down in Durban” which was written at Umhlanga Rocks in Durban and features backing vocals from Sir Cliff Richard and “Umthombo Tree” about the Umthombo Street Child project in Durban.

This is an album of hope: many of the songs were written about situations which were of tremendous suffering and yet a flicker of hope was seen in each of the different situations, and many of the societies have now changed for the better.

 

Above all, this album demonstrates Garth’s great love and affection for the continent of Africa.
