My Miriam Makeba Story with Sima Mashazi
Start DateSep 13 2018
Sima Mashazi is a rising star in South Africa. She performed the role of the young Miriam Makeba in the first international musical, Mama Africa (which toured in both the USA and SA). The experience deepened Sima’s admiration for Makeba’s music and the woman behind it. In this show, Sima shares the themes in Makeba’s music and life that touched her and bear similarities to her own journey. Sima includes songs of her own that relate to Makeba’s story. In ‘My Miriam Makeba Story’, Sima pays tribute to a historical figure who spoke truth through her lyrics and gave hope to so many, amidst her own struggles. Expect world-famous hits like Phatha Phatha to less known gems like Suliram (an Indonesian lullaby) and expect to be mesmerized by the talent of rising star, Sima Mashazi.
