Waiting for the Rain is a 1985 studio album by South African jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela. The album features a constellation of local African stars, most notably Bheki Mseleku on tenor sax and keyboards, and includes a cover of Fela Kuti's classic song "Lady". The album is dedicated to his mother, Pauline Bowers Masekela. Many tracks from this album were later included in his 2002 live album Live at the BBC.
