Today’s edition of African Rhythms on KFAI featured a set of music from some of South Africa’s greatest female voices, going back to a 1964 LP by Miriam Makeba (The Voice of Africa) and fast-forwarding to contemporary stars like Simphiwe Dana, Thandiswa, and Lira (singing a lovely pop song in Zulu). We also heard a couple of tracks from M.anifest’s forthcoming album plus the usual eclectic mix of sounds from the continent and beyond.
