Simphiwe Dana

Thu, 16. Nov 2006, 8 PM | It's Afro Time
Festsaal Messe Basel

The legendary «Mama Africa», Miriam Makeba, and her youngest heiress, Simphiwe Dana, promise to make our African evening a celebration of women's power and over fifty years of South African songwriting. During the apartheid years, Makeba's famous «Pata Pata» made her an international ambassador for the «other» black South Africa. This will be her second appearance at the AVO SESSION Basel, this time as the revered role model of a new, young generation. And her musical versatility, brimming over with jazzy swing and funky grooves, will be reinterpreted with stunning freshness by Simphiwe Dana, who was born in 1980.
