Miriam Makeba – Mama Afrika: March 4, 1932 – November 9, 2008)

Early this morning, we lost one of our Mothers, Mama Afrika. I once had the privilege and pleasure of seeing Miriam Makeba at an open air concert here in London and she was everything beautiful and more. Activist and singer, Miriam Makeba brought us all so much with her music and her strong, proud, elegant persona and though she rests now with her ancestors she will aways be alive through her music.
