Makeba died of a heart attack on 9 November 2008 after performing in a concert in Italy organised to support writer Roberto Saviano in his stand against the Camorra, a mafia-like organisation local to the region of Campania. Zenzile Miriam Makeba was born in Johannesburg on 4 March 1932. Her mother was a Swazi sangoma (traditional healer-herbalist). Her father, who died when she was six years old, was a Xhosa.
This new album is not for Makeba neophytes, but instead for those of us who are long-time fans of this brilliant musician. The difficult rhythms and lyrics and her aging voice led me to wax nostalgic for the Xhosa folk music of earlier cd's and albums. Nevertheless, there is great music here. I was especially moved by the children's choir on two of the songs, and the tender songs of love.
