  1. Gaik Cheng Khoo's rating of the film Mama Africa

    Amazing stuff. OR maybe it was just the sheer synergy of having watched The Black Power Mix tapes and seeing Stokey Carmichael in there a few days ago and then finding out tonight that he married Miriam Makeba. Wow, wish I had seen her perform live when she was still alive. What an amazing voice and a magnificent woman.

  2. mpho3's rating of the film Mama Africa

    Makeba was one of a kind and richly deserved to be called Mama Africa. For a film filled with archival footage of her performing and being interviewed, I find it odd that the filmmaker did not identify any of the talking heads. Despite such an egregious flaw, the film is a wonderful tribute to a woman who truly inspired with her voice and by how she lived her life.
