Zimbabwean born singer, musician and storyteller Anna Mudeka tells the remarkable life story of an iconic South African singer, songwriter and civil rights activist, Miriam Makeba, charting her rise from the townships of Johannesburg to global star, forced into exile for her stand against apartheid and marginalised for championing Black rights. Told in four character incarnations chronicling a life blighted by hardship, tragedy and struggle; Mama Afrika the story of hope, determination and song features many best loved songs including Mbube, Pata Pata and Soweto Blues, embodying an irrepressible spirit and integrity and which earned her legendary status.
