Miriam Makemba: Mama Africa
Label: UNION SQUARE/CONVEYOR
2013 two CD collection. In 1959 Miriam Makeba left South Africa. For more than 30 years, while her fame spread worldwide, she was unable to return. The recordings on these CDs include some of the last she made before her exile and the first she made upon arriving in the United States. They catch her at a peak and show why - even after her death in 2008 - she is one of the most celebrated African singers of our time. Includes detailed sleeve notes and a fold-out poster. Metro Select.
