A hugely enjoyable and informative celebration of the life of the charismatic musical icon, Miriam Makeba, exiled South African singer and radical anti-apartheid activist who travelled the world with her message of hope for Africa. The first singer to popularise South African music around the world, Miriam Makeba was a leading figure in the Pan-African liberation struggles of the 70s who married both Hugh Masekela and Black Panther leader, Stokely Carmichael, eventually returning to South Africa at Nelson Mandela’s personal request and huge popular acclaim after 27 years abroad.
