- This 25-song set spans a hefty chunk of Miriam Makeba's career, reaching back to the 1950s and moving up through the '60s and '70s. Represented here are Makeba's recording with the Manhattan Brothers, as well as her acclaimed solo work, which blends American popular styles with indigenous African sounds.
- Along with Harry Belafonte, Makeba is an early icon of black identity, and her outspoken views gained her as much attention as her music. But one thing that MAMA AFRICA emphasizes is how consistent and appealing Makeba remained as a singer and a synthesizer of styles. This is a fine overview of this vibrant and enduring cultural legend.
