Here is Moesha, lead singer of Moya who sang so beautifully at Plymouth's Respect Festival 2006. I was lucky enough to catch this shot of her during a really emotional part of a traditional song from Swaziland, her country of birth.
The expression on her face made a commenter on Google+ say: ..makes me think of the end of Wordsworth's 'The Solitary Reaper':
Will no one tell me what she sings?--
Perhaps the plaintive numbers flow
For old, unhappy, far-off things,
And battles long ago:
Or is it some more humble lay,
Familiar matter of to-day?
Some natural sorrow, loss, or pain,
That has been, and may be again?
Whate'er the theme, the Maiden sang
As if her song could have no ending;
I saw her singing at her work,
And o'er the sickle bending;--
I listen'd, motionless and still;
And, as I mounted up the hill,
The music in my heart I bore,
Long after it was heard no more
