Miriam Makeba & The Skylarks - Vol. 2


This is the second part of a delightful two-volume collection of jazzy hits by the group that made Makeba a South African star in the 1950s. The songs were remastered from 78s and 45s recorded between 1956 and 1959.

If you're only familiar with Miriam Makeba's folk-era recordings ("The Click Song," etc.) then take the time to check out this amazing set of her earliest work from the mid-1950s, with the Skylarks vocal ensemble. This is South African "jive" music, a mix of ska-like African rhythms and American jazz and swing melodies - some of the most cheery and infectious music you'll ever hear!

The Skylarks at the time was made up of Miriam Makeba, Abigail Kubeka, "Mummy Girl" Mketele, Mary Rabotapo and Nomunde Sihawu.
