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.
