Mbube
Miriam Makeba Lyrics


Walal'emini sodliw'amathamsanqa mama
Yeh hay hay hay hay hay
Kutheni ngath'andiva kahle nje mfowethu?
Yintoni ngathi niyanxila nje?

Kanti walal'emini sodliw'amathamsanqa mama
Yeh hay hay hay hay hay
Woya

Soulful and beautiful performer. I love how gentle her speaking voice is then she just bursts into song with amazing lung power. Incredible!

Keisha Higgins

Love her voice ! And that clicking!❤️❤️❤️

fenderjag114

Yes, that's an incredible moment.

Ok, who else got goosebumps when she started singing? Everyone?
If you didn't have a reaction, you might want to check your pulse!
I don't have words that haven't already been used a million times to describe the majesty of her voice, or the beauty of her smile and spirit.
I was 6 or 7 the first time I heard her, it was Ed Sullivan's show, she sang "Pata Pata", and I've loved her ever since.
I'm so grateful that many more people are discovering her now because of the internet.
Thank you, Mother Africa, the cradle of humankind. Now as humans, we need to learn to BE kind!
Love is the answer, it always is. Hate never solved a problem, just creates new ones.

I'm jealous of everyone who got to see this in person. Every video i see of her, she's dressed like an angel. I always wonder what color her dress and accessories were .... She's so talented, anyway 🤩🤩

Jason Cummings

The way she switched from her opening monologue to that powerful singing voice.
Spectacular!!!

Chale Tinashe

This is not just a music, but art.

When she speaks, its so gentle and peaceful but when she sings its powerful and bold and her voice is just beautiful!
