Miriam Makeba

The world has lost another beacon of light with the passing of Miriam Makeba. I had the great pleasure of seeing and hearing her in a small club in Forte dei Marmi soon after the dismantling of apartheid in South Africa. The room was on fire with her energy, talent and compassion. Her music lives on, reminding us of the work she did for justice, and the work that remains to be done.
