Released:
Label: Warner Bros.
In 1988 Africa's greatest female singer recorded an album of traditional Xhosa songs and prayers, partly in an effort to help heal the scars of apartheid. The result is one of the most beautiful South African albums ever released. Makeba's voice is slightly age-roughened but still incredibly powerful; she's supported by an able chorus in her sangoma's (healer's) songs.
