Several friends posted Miriam Makeba singing ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight’ on Facebook and I was tempted to post it here but then thought, no, I’ll look for another of her videos so that I don’t duplicate their efforts.
Here’s another MM song I’ve always liked: ‘Pata Pata’:
Looking through the YouTube videos I also found ‘The Click Song’.
She introduces it by saying that people always her how she makes ‘that noise’. Her answer: “The click is not a ‘noise’: it’s part of my language, Xhosa.”
Here’s the link to ‘The Lion Sleeps Tonight‘.
