  • MIRIAM MAKEBA - Malaika - Original 1974 single with Swahili and English Lyrics.

    7:11

    Zenzile Miriam Makeba was born in Johannesburg in 1932. Her mother was a Swazi sangoma (traditional healer-herbalist). Her father, who died when she was six years old, was a Xhosa. When she was eighteen days old, her mother was arrested for selling umqombothi, an African homemade beer distilled from malt and cornmeal. Her mother was sentenced to a six-month prison term, so Miriam spent her first six months of life in jail. As a child, she sang in the choir of the Kilmerton Training Institute' in Pretoria, a primary school that she attended for eight years.

    Her professional career began in the 1950s when she was featured in the South African jazz group the Manhattan Brothers, and appeared for the first time on a poster. She left the Manhattan Brothers to record with her all-woman group, The Skylarks, singing a blend of jazz and traditional melodies of South Africa. As early as 1956, she released the single for Pata Pata. The single was played on all the radio stations and made her known throughout all of South Africa. Though she was a successful recording artist, she was only receiving a few dollars for each recording session and no provisional royalties, and was keen to leave home

    2:06

    Miriam Makeba
    (4 March 1932 -- 10 November 2008)
    one helluva lady... 100% dedicated to her craft, all the way to her dying day voice of freedom, her songs share the stories, the struggles, the integrity of the native South African people under Apartheid Rule throughout the 60's , 70's , and 80's.
    now go and learn more, hear more, and share more
    The woman, the legend, the angel , the sage ..
    Hail Mama Africa
    Hail the memory of Miriam Makeba
    ~ M. Garza ~

    Makeba's life has consistently been marked by struggle. As the daughter of a sangoma, a mystical traditional healer of the Xhosa tribe, she spent six months of her birth year in jail with her mother. Gifted with a dynamic vocal tone, Makeba recorded her debut single, Lakutshona Llange, as a member of the Manhattan Brothers in 1953. Although she left to form an all-female group named the Skylarks in 1958, she reunited with members of the Manhattan Brothers when she accepted the lead female role in a musical version of King Kong, which told the tragic tale of Black African boxer, Ezekiel King Kong Dlamani, in 1959. The same year, she began an 18-month tour of South Africa with Alf Herbert's musical extravaganza, African Jazz and Variety, and made an appearance in a documentary film, Come Back Africa. These successes led to invitations to perform in Europe and the United States.
    Makeba was embraced by the African American community. Pata Pata, Makeba's signature tune, was written by Dorothy Masuka and recorded in South Africa in 1956 before eventually becoming a major hit in the U.S. in 1967. In late 1959, she performed for four weeks at the Village Vanguard in New York. She later made a guest appearance during Harry Belafonte's groundbreaking concerts at Carnegie Hall. A double-album of the event, released in 1960, received a Grammy award. Makeba has continued to periodically renew her collaboration with Belafonte, releasing an album in 1972 titled Belafonte & Miriam Makeba. Makeba then made a special guest appearance at the Harry Belafonte Tribute at Madison Square Garden in 1997.
    Makeba's successes as a vocalist were also balanced by her outspoken views about apartheid. In 1960, the government of South Africa revoked her citizenship. For the next 30 years, she was forced to be a citizen of the world. Makeba received the Dag Hammerskjold Peace Prize in 1968. After marrying radical black activist Stokely Carmichael, many of her concerts were canceled, and her recording contract with RCA was dropped, resulting in even more problems for the artist. She eventually relocated to Guinea at the invitation of president Sekou Toure and agreed to serve as Guinea's delegate to the United Nations. In 1964 and 1975, she addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations on the horrors of apartheid.
    Makeba remained active as a musician over the years. In 1975, she recorded an album, A Promise, with Joe Sample, Stix Hooper, Arthur Adams, and David T. Walker of the Crusaders. Makeba joined Paul Simon and South Africa 's Ladysmith Black Mambazo during their worldwide Graceland tour in 1987 and 1988. Two years later, she joined Odetta and Nina Simone for the One Nation tour.
    Makeba published her autobiography, Miriam: My Story, in English in 1988 and subsequently had it translated and published in German, French, Dutch, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Following Nelson Mandela's release from prison, Makeba returned to South Africa in December 1990. She performed her first concert in her homeland in 30 years in April 1991. She appeared in South African award-winning musical Sarafina in 1992 in the role of Sarafina's mother. Two years later, she reunited with her first husband, trumpeter Hugh Masekela, for the Tour of Hope tour. In 1995, Makeba formed a charity organization to raise funds to help protect the women of South Africa. The same year, she performed at the Vatican's Nevi Hall during a worldwide broadcast, Christmas in the Vatican. Makeba's first studio album in a decade, Homeland, was released in 2000. ~

    From An Evening With Belafonte/Makeba (1965)
    Sound recording administered by The Orchard Music-SME
    ___ Malaika is a Swahili song written by Tanzanian Adam Salim in 1945. This song is possibly the most famous of all Swahili love songs in Tanzania, Kenya and the entire East Africa, as well as being one of the most widely known of all Swahili songs in the world. Malaika in this context means angel in Swahili, and this word has always been used by the Swahili speakers to refer to a beautiful girl.
    The lyrics of the song differ slightly from version to version; the title itself is subject to variation, such as Ewe Malaika or My Angel.
    precious South African voice of the “Mother Africa” Miriam Makeba, who popularized the song both in and out of Africa.

  • Miriam Makeba - Akana Nkomo

    3:40

    Miriam Makeba (Johannesburgo, Sudáfrica, 4 de marzo de 1932-Castel Volturno, Italia, 9 de noviembre de 2008).

    Aunque pasó su infancia en Pretoria (Transvaal), Makeba comenzó a cantar en los años cincuenta con el grupo Manhattan Brothers, tras lo que fundó su propia banda, The Skylarks, que mezclaba jazz con música tradicional sudafricana.

    Después de ver que no podía llevar a cabo en su país la carrera musical que ella quería por su activismo comprometido, la cantante viajó a Venecia (Italia) para después conseguir llegar a Londres (Reino Unido), donde conoció a Harry Belafonte, quien le ayudó a entrar en Estados Unidos. Luego de su casamiento con el activista negro trinitense Stokely Carmichael, la persecución estatal los obligó a abandonar el país, trasladando su residencia a Guinea.

    Icono de la lucha contra el apartheid en su país, Makeba, marginada durante más de tres décadas por el régimen racista sudafricano, siempre estuvo comprometida con la lucha por los derechos civiles y contra el racismo, una entrega que llevó a cabo hasta el último momento de su vida. La cantante, conocida también como «Mamá África», supo llevar como nadie al escenario las tradiciones y los trajes típicos de su tierra, en espectáculos donde su voz cálida y su gran presencia eclipsaban a los instrumentos étnicos que la acompañaban.

    En 1972, Makeba actuó en el Festival de la Canción de Viña del Mar (en Chile). Es conocida en ese país por lo que fue su cercanía con la Unidad Popular y la figura de Salvador Allende. En dicha actuación fue abucheada por un público claramente opositor al gobierno socialista. En 1973 se separó de Carmichael.

    Logró su máxima popularidad con el inolvidable tema Pata Pata (1966), que fue difundido en diferentes países del mundo alcanzando los primeros lugares en los ranking de música pop. Esa canción fue versionada también por otros intérpretes, como la mexicana Thalía o la popular banda Chebere.

    Makeba residió en Guinea hasta su regreso a Sudáfrica el 10 de junio de 1990 tras la excarcelación de Nelson Mandela, quien tiempo después le ofreció participar en su gobierno.

    En el 16 de octubre de 1999, Miriam Makeba fue nombrada Embajadora de Buena Voluntad de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Agricultura y la Alimentación (FAO).

    En el año 2001, Makeba fue galardonada con el premio de la paz Otto Hahn, otorgado por la Asociación Alemana de la ONU. En 2002 fue galardonada con el Polar Music Prize que otorga la Real Academia Sueca de Música.

    El 9 de noviembre de 2008 falleció en la localidad de Castel Volturno, en el sur de Italia, a causa de un paro cardiaco que se produjo tras un concierto contra el racismo y la mafia, en el que participaba.

    Following a three decade long exile, Miriam Makeba's return to South Africa was celebrated as though a queen was restoring her monarchy. The response was fitting as Makeba remains the most important female vocalist to emerge out of South Africa. Hailed as The Empress Of African Song and Mama Africa, Makeba helped bring African music to a global audience in the 1960s. Nearly five decades after her debut with the Manhattan Brothers, she continues to play an important role in the growth of African music.

    Makeba's life has been consistently marked by struggle. As the daughter of a sangoma, a mystical traditional healer of the Xhosa tribe, she spent six months of her birth year in jail with her mother. Gifted with a dynamic vocal tone, Makeba recorded her debut single, Lakutshona Llange, as a member of the Manhattan Brothers in 1953.

The same year, she began an 18 month tour of South Africa with Alf Herbert's musical extravaganza, African Jazz And Variety, and made an appearance in a documentary film, Come Back Africa. These successes led to invitations to perform in Europe and the United States.

    Makeba was embraced by the African-American community. Pata Pata, Makeba's signature tune was written by Dorothy Masuka and recorded in South Africa in 1956 before eventually becoming a major hit in the U.S. in 1967. In late-1959, she performed for four weeks at the Village Vanguard in New York. She later made a guest appearance during Harry Belafonte's ground-breaking concerts at Carnegie Hall. A double-album of the event, released in 1960, received a Grammy award. Makeba has continued to periodically renew her collaboration with Belafonte, releasing an album in 1972 titled Miriam Makeba and Harry Belafonte. Makeba then made a special guest appearance at the Harry Belafonte Tribute at Madison Square Garden in 1997.

    “A Promise” was produced by Caiphus Semenya in 1974. Recorded in the United States the album features Joe Sample on piano and Sticks Cooper (of The Crusaders) on drums.

    Miriam Makeba (4 March 1932 – 9 November 2008), nicknamed Mama Africa, was a Grammy Award-winning South African singer and civil rights activist. In the 1960s she was the first artist from Africa to popularize African music in the U.S. and around the world. She is best known for the song Pata Pata, first recorded in 1957 and released in the U.S. in 1967. She recorded and toured with many popular artists, such as Harry Belafonte, Paul Simon, and her former husband Hugh Masekela.

    She actively campaigned against the South African system of apartheid. As a result, the South African government revoked her citizenship and right of return. After the end of apartheid she returned home. She died on 9 November 2008 after performing in a concert in Italy organized to support writer Roberto Saviano in his stand against the Camorra, a mafia-like organisation local to the region of Campania.

    You take drugs to psych your mind
    You take wine to forget about time
    You create a world of your own
    Where the truth will never be known
    Well brother don't you know now
    That you're killing yourself
    And nobody else

    Why don't you quit it now
    Yeah why don't you quit it know
    You better quit it now
    I said you better quit it now
    Cloud nine no responsibility

    Your forbidden space feeling good
    Running away will never make you
    A man
    'cause reality 's gonna bring you down
    But brother don't you know now
    that you're killing yourself
    And nobody else

    You better quit it now
    Why don't you quit it now
    Lord have mercy
    Why don't you quit it now
    Yeah you better quit it now
    You got a problem see a doctor

    Doctor can't help see your brother
    Why don't you try talking to your mama sometime
    Remember she brought you into this world
    But brother don't you know now
