on March 4, 1932, South African singer Miriam
Makeba was a pioneer of "world music"
and her life reflected the troubled and triumphant
path of her nation. While we didn't get deep into
the biography of Mama Africa, we spun some of
her music from different periods of her life,
and a couple of musical tributes to her as well.
Plus new releases, concert previews and reviews,
and more. Having seen Vusi Mahlasela and Zakir
Hussain in the past week, I had to share more
of their music. Plus a preview and ticket giveaways
for Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
