We chatted to Cindy Alter about her childhood dreams and her years with Clout and Zia. After leaving South Africa in the early nineties she found peace and fulfillment in Los Angeles. Life decided to throw her another curveball - she was diagnosed with Acute Mylogenous Leukemia. This was just the beginning of the long road back to health after undergoing a Stem-Cell Bone Marrow Transplant. She survived and in 2005 “Clout” recorded a new CD, and toured South Africa.
Today, Cindy is healthy and happy, joined forces with Stewart Irving forming Alter-Irving and is telling the stories about her life’s journey through her music and writing her biography, aptly titled, “No Substitute”! As she says, “It’s been a wild ride, but it’s far from over”
On the show we played some of the Clout oldies and her song, Tightrope. This song forms part of the iStart2 Compilation CD to be released later this year. To listen to the amazing life journey of an incredible icon of South African music just click play:
