Reviews

MAMA AFRICA is the biography of the South African singer, Miriam Makeba, who was the first black, African musician to win international stardom. Her music influenced artists across the globe, although her style stayed anchored in her South African roots. She sang for John F. Kennedy and Marlon Brando, performed with Harry Belafonte, Nina Simone and Dizzie Gillespie.

Makeba was also a vocal campaigner against apartheid, and always stood for truth and justice. After her involvement with the 1959 documentary COME BACK AFRICA (one of the first films to expose the harsh realities of apartheid) she was forced into a life in exile from her homeland.

This documentary traces her life and music through more than fifty years of performing. Friends and colleagues, some who knew her from the beginning, in the dance halls of South Africa (remember Pata Pata ), together with her grandchildren, allow us to know the remarkable journey of Mama Africa .

Beautifully crafted documentary tracing Miriam Makeba's life fighting Apartheid.
Honest and touching in its composition. The Makeba icon is portrayed as a normal woman which is refreshing.
