5.0 out of 5 stars Lighthearted and fun March 22, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ms. Makeba's voice and melodies are rich and intriguing. Sometimes for me her voice evokes shades of Edith Piaf and Earta Kitt. Ms. Makeba though, is a force of nature and captivated me on this album. The intricate voices and rythmns are joyful and they caught me up into them.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT April 13, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As one who knew Miriam Makeba and I also have the album "PATA PATA".
I found it to be a great and wonderful work of Miriam Makeba as I did
when it came out. She truly deserved the name Mother Africa.

I had never heard of Miriam Makeba until I learned of her though Professor John McWhorter who referred to her on a set of great courses CDs on the history of human language. She was interesting linguistically because of her native "click" language. This album; in fact, contains her "Click Song". What I discovered was an incredibly talented singer. After reading about her life I discovered what an great person she was. From modest beginnings in South Africa she became not only a remarkable singer, but a civil rights activist affectionately called "Mama Africa". She died in 2008 respected and beloved.

5.0 out of 5 stars She was unique! May 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Her recording of 'Pata Pata' has been a favorite of mine for years. I used to play it while I did my house cleaning. It was a record. Over the years I had to give up my records, but now I have her on CD. She had a great voice.

I love this CD because the music serenades me. I play it over and over at home and in the car. I love it so much that I had to purchase a second copy just to have it permanently in m car's globe compartment.

Miriam Makeba was an amazing singer. I love the title song, and the rest of the tracks are just beautiful. The spirit she put in her music is such that I get carried off to far away places ever time I listen to it. I just love it.
