Mama Africa: Miriam Makeba

Series: Sonic Cinema

Miriam Makeba was one of the first African musicians to win international stardom, and whose music was always anchored in her traditional South African roots. She spent half a century traveling the world spreading her political message to fight racism and poverty; and promote justice and peace. Through rare archive footage of her performances and through testimonies of her contemporaries and supporters including Harry Belafonte, Stokely Carmichael, Hugh Masekela, Paul Simon, Angélique Kidjo and many others - we discover Miriam Makeba’s remarkable journey.
