Based on the life of Miriam Makeba.
At her final concert, South African musical legend and activist Miriam Makeba delivers the performance of her life, raising the conscience and the consciousness of a people. But the ancestors are calling—transporting her through the music and fractured memories of her past on a spiritual journey of reconciliation.
Based on the life and music of Zenzile Miriam Makeba, a singer, songwriter, actress, United Nations goodwill ambassador, and civil rights activist, this world-premiere musical — written and performed by GRAMMY-nominated international music sensation Somi Kakoma — is an electrifying portrait of a revolutionary artist’s singular voice and vision.
