The Cocoa Lounge Remembers: Miriam Makeba

Miriam1

If one woman could embody the hope and pride of an entire continent, South African, Miriam Makeba was that woman, and she handled the role with grace, class and a remarkable style all her own.


Today we remember the unparalleled "Mama Africa;" singer, activist and legend. She will be greatly missed.

I am a huge fan of her voice, She had released over thirty albums over the years, and her powerful and distinctive voice retains the clarity and range that enable it to be both forceful as a protest march and as poignant as an African lullaby.
