Miriam Makeba is no more

An important figure in arts and politics ceases to be. After more than 60 years of singing, the South African musical icon and embassador of African music to the world, Miriam Makeba dies of a heart attack after giving a performance in Italy.

The news in the NYT

Pata Pata (live at Avo Session, Basel 2007)

It’s the song that made her famous and which became her trademark.

Oxgam (live performance at the Salonger in Stockholm, 1966)

Rest in peace Miriam Makeba.
