Welcome to my website about Africa's most famous Lady, also known as Mama Africa.
Miriam Makeba met Harry
Belafonte in London 1958 and made her US debut November 1959 in The Steve Allen
Show. Since that time she has, together with her enchanting songs, found her way into the
hearts of millions of people all over the world,
and on the 27th of May 2002 she received the Swedish Polar Music Prize
from Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden.
I hope you will enjoy your visit here.
