The Roots Of Miriam Makeba From South Africa To New York

? Known widely as "Mama Africa", Johannesburg-born MIRIAM MAKEBA, of Xhosa and Swazi descent, was a controversial singer, songwriter, feminist and political activist, perhaps one of the most important black women of the 20th Century.

? A singer with a dynamic, wholly unique vocal range, she built a career in South Africa during the 1950s, largely as a member of an all-female vocal group, The Skylarks, and as a "guest" member of the all-male Manhattan Brothers.

? She met Harry Belafonte in 1959, who encouraged her to move to New York, where he mentored her career and produced her early albums.

? Disc 1 of this 2-CD set features the pick of her 1950s recordings made in South Africa, between 1954-59, and includes her first international hit, 'Lovely Lies', recorded with The Manhattan Bros.

? Disc 2 comprises her earliest New York recordings, the LPs "Miriam Makeba" (which featured 'The Click Song') and "The Many Voices Of Miriam Makeba", plus a couple of sides recorded with Belafonte at Carnegie Hall.
