Today's Inspiration : Miriam Makeba

Hello My dear ones and welcome to a new post ! Today is about a person , a face , an amazing character , who made a change in 60's and 70's . A great personality from Africa...  
Zenzile Miriam Makeba (04/03/1932 - 09/11/2008), nicknamed Mama Africa , was an african singer , actress , UN goodwill ambassador and civil rights activist !

On 15th March i upload at my Instagram page a photo of Jain , "Makeba " is one of her songs . She wrote as a dedication to Miriam Makeba . Jain wanted more people to know who she was . That made me wonder who Miriam Makeba was , so i googled her .

Makeba was an amazing voice , who was well known at 70's . When she starts singing , you have the feeling of traveling straight to Africa . Being in the wild beauty of this continent ! A feeling that you are very far away from what you already know.

In 1967 , she became famous in Us with her "Pata Pata ". This song was her most popular recording . In 1991 , she collaborated with Nina Simone and Dizzy Gillespie.

After Miriam Makeba passed away , South African President Nelson Madela said that " her music inspired a powerful sense of hope in all of us " .

In a modern , danceable rhythm Jain sings :

" Nobody can beat the mama Africa
You follow the beat that she's gonna give you
I need a smile you can love 
Make it go , the sufferation of a thousand more "

Lets look around for people , who inspire us to do more good .

Until next time ... take care !!!
