Miriam Makeba has endured decades of struggle. A child of apartheid, and an artist forced to live in exile, she has witnessed the ravages of racism and intolerance all her life. As she writes: "It is said that a person can learn a lot about a society from their music. I invite you, my friend, to listen to these cries from the heart that are the songs of my people."
Sangoma is a name given to a person possessed by the spirits of their tribal ancestors. SANGOMA, the album, brings to life age-old tribal songs from Africa's past. Each song, sung in Makeba's native Zulu tongue, celebrates the mysteries of the spirit world. Highlights include "Baya Jabula" a song in praise of the ancient spirits after they have cured someone through a sangoma, "Icala," and "Congo," both of which revolve around the plight of women. Uplifting and celebratory, SANGOMA is one of Miriam Makeba's most important albums.
