Dusty & Stones
Dusty & Stones is a Country Music duo from Swaziland, Africa, consisting of cousins, Gazi 'Dusty' Simelane and Linda 'Stones' Msibi, both vocalists, guitarists and songwriters. Swaziland is a small country (a Kingdom) sharing its borders with The Republic of South Africa and Mozambique. The duo was founded in 2005.
Dusty (born 22 March 1982) is mostly on lead vocals while Stones (born 23 December 1983) is mostly on harmony vocals. The duo released their first and only studio album, Mooihoek Country Fever, in 2009, which won them "The Best Country Music Artists/Group" award in their home country for three consecutive years (2010, 2011 & 2013). Two Irish radio DJs discovered their music in 2015. Their songs 'Ride with me' and 'Mkhulu welfu' became moderately popular in Ireland as a result. Both Dusty and Stones are fine guitarists and they both share guitar solo parts during their performances.
