    Hurry, Mama, Hurry!

    Joyful and jubilant dose of aural prozac courtesy of this Zimbabwean jazz singer. You can find it on the wonderful compilation of Calypso and African Jazz: London is the Place for Me Volume 4. This song has since been covered by Miriam Makeba and Hugh Masekela but I don't think anyone will ever top the vibrant original.

    Dorothy Masuka is a jazz singer who was born in Zimbabwe in 1935, then called Southern Rhodesia. She was the fourth of seven children and her mother was Zulu while her father was a Zambian hotel chef. Still, she attended a Catholic school deemed good by the standards of education allowed blacks. Her family moved to South Africa when she was twelve due to her health. By the time she was nineteen she was touring in South Africa with singers she had admired as a girl.

    Masuka's music was popular in South Africa throughout the 1950s, but when her songs became more serious, the government began questioning her. Her song Dr. Malan, mentioning difficult laws, was banned and in 1961 she sang a song for Patrice Lumumba which led to her exile. This exile lasted thirty-one years in total. Many of her songs are in the Ndebele language or Sindebele languages.

  • Dorothy Masuka - Im Like This Women of Africa

    4:05

    Track 10 'I'm Like This' by veteran peformer Dorothy Masuka from the 1989 CD album 'Women of Africa' released by Sound Products, Holland. She was born in Rhodesia but received her schooling in South Africa and chose to stay there after graduating in order to pursue a musical career. Dorothy was right there at the beginning of the greatest music revolution that happened in Southern Africa in the 1950's. Born in Buluwayo she went to a mission school in South Africa where at the tender age of 12 years she cut her first record. She is the undoubted Queen of Marabi Music. She has influenced many singers and musicians in Africa. Her songs have been covered by Miriam Makeba and Harry Belafonte.

    She started out in a show called African Jazz and Variety, with Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela and others, imitating American jazz greats like Ella Fitzgerald. With the full-blown emergence of Apartheid in Rhodesia, she moved to London where she lived for many years, performing on one occasion at Wembley during Harold Wilson's election campaign. Masuka went back to Rhodesia in 1965 but left again and did not return until 1980.

    Masuka's musical style is known as mabira: a fusion of swing and Zulu melodies, sung with great force and intensity. Her earlier songs, and most notably Kutheni Zulu, were hard-edged and political, but she has since chosen to de-emphasize polemics in favor of poetics. Masuka's songs in the 1990s are upbeat and chipper. A veteran performer now, with more than 40 years of performing and touring under her belt, she is finally enjoying celebrity status in the world music world and hopes to crown her career by attaining the financial security that most African performers still lack.
