Short Description: 
Music of Miriam Makeba: Late 1950s - early 1970s / host: Andy Hosch
Born in 1932, Miriam Makeba's professional career began around 1953, when she was featured with the South African vocal group The Manhattan Brothers, whose sound emulated Afro-American groups like the Mills Brothers and Ink Spots. In 1956, Makeba formed her own group, The Skylarks. Their sound blended elements of jazz and gospel with traditional South African melodies. Though already a star in Southern Africa, Makeba remained largely unknown to the rest of the world until her arrival in NYC in late 1959, where wiithin in few weeks she had appeared on nationwide television, recorded her first U.S. LP and prepared to go on tour with Harry Belafonte. Quickly, Makeba was becoming the first artist from Africa to achieve popular success in the wider world.

Obo Addy, the Ghanaian master drummer, bandleader, and teacher who made Portland his home for over 30 years, passed away in 2012, but his influence in Portland and the Pacific Northwest continues, having spawned a love for African music in musicians and listeners alike.  Obo's greatest contribution was his tireless work in the region's schools --providing exposure to African music and culture for generations of children.
Join DJ Charlie (WorldBeat Connection) & Andy Hosch (Africa O-Yé!) along with Susan Addy, Mic Crenshaw, and other guests for 3-hours of of music and dialog, remembering Obo's life and music.  Obo Addy gave a great deal to this community, and his legacy remains strong.

While the special ran from 1:00-4:00, this play list is for portion of the show from 2-4 pm, hosted by Andy Hosch.   Please follow this link to learn more about the Obo Addy Legacy Projects fundraiser music event coming on Saturday, Oct. 18
