Mama Afrika in fine form
Pieter | Johannesburg | 07/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Makeba first achieved international fame with her hit Pata Pata in the 1960s. This set of beautiful and varied songs highlights the South African singer's exceptional voice. The title track is a great ballad, whilst Ndiarabi is a funky number with buoyant rhythms and powerful vocals. Other great tracks include the exile's lament I Long To Return, Bambarana, My People and the evocative Serenade Me. There is a very short number called Good Grunge that sounds like a happy jamming session, and the album concludes with the French song Prendre Un Enfant. Miriam Makeba or Mama Afrika as she is affectionately known, is one of South Africa's greatest female vocalists and composers who has consistently produced quality work over five decades. This album from 1994 is one of the jewels in her crown.
