Hommage à Miriam Makeba (4 mMars 1932 - 9 novembre 2008)

Un joli chanson pleine d'humour en duo avec Harry Belafonte et un hommage en image et en parole par Nelson Mandela et Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.



I hope you like this tribute...it's a song she performed with Harry Belafonte: "One More Dance"

"Hear haunting melodies gave voice to the pain of exile and dislocation which she felt for 31 long years. At the same time, her music inspired a powerful sense of hope in all of us" - N. Mandela

"One of the greatest songstresses of our time has ceased to sing" - Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma

"She was South Africa's first lady of song and so richly deserved the title of Mama Afrika. She was a mother to our struggle and to the young nation of ours" - N. Mandela

"Throughout her life Mama Makeba communicated a positive message to the world about the struggle of the people of South Africa and the certainty of victory over the dark forces of apartheid and colonialism through the art of song." - Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma

"I kept my culture. I kept the music of my roots. through my music I became the voice and the image of Africa, and the people, without even realizing." - M. Makeba

"I am not a political singer. I don't know what the word means. People think I consciously decided to tell the world what was happening in South Africa. No! I was singing about my life, and in South Africa we always sang about what was happening to us - especially the things that hurt us." - M. Makeba
