Black & BlueWritten by Ryan Swano
Ashleigh Davids needs no introduction to regular bruinou.com readers having occasionally written articles in our entertainemnt section over the past few years and more recently having her personal blog re-published on our community news pages. She has through the course of her writing and journalism career also been nurturing a career as a performing artist and musician with her latest single play-listed on radio stations all over the country and as far away as the UK.
A song packed with meaning and symbolism it also speaks directly and indirectly to the issues that are highlighted in South Africa during Womans Month.
Soon after the release of Black and Blue which you can Download for Free, Ashleigh left Cape Town for a seemingly unrelated venture in Malawi where she will be living till the end of the year.
However, if you have taken in anything that Ashleigh has written, sang about or spoken of over the past few years you will know that there is no such thing to her as an unrelated venture and everything she does relates to a long-term higher purpose.

In a series of short videos Ashleigh speaks about Black & Blue to radio personality DJ Easy who also happens to collaborate with her on various other performing arts projects.
