Durban-born singer Sushiela Govender won Best Indian Album at the South African Traditional Music Awards (Satma) held in Durban recently.

Formerly of Malvern and now living in Cape Town, this recognition for the retired school teacher comes after more than five decades in the music industry. The award is for her devotional CD Dharshan, A Prayer for All. This is her second CD released early this year following her debut CD, Anbumalai, which was released in 2000.
