Robyn Loau was Australia's answer to Neneh Cherry, Dionne Farris. She was quite talented. She was trapped in a major record deal and after 4 years in limbo was dropped by Universal.

She was also the face and voice of Siva Pacifica- the widely released pacific island CD that captured the music of the tribes and villages of the South Pacific. I think there are some videos on youtube.
