    Documentary on the life of the South African singer, Miriam Makeba. Makeba, known affectionately as Mama Africa, helped popularise African music worldwide and achieved particular success in America, winning a Grammy Award and reaching number 12 in the Billboard Chart with her song, 'Pata Pata'. However, the singer did not forget about her roots.

    Though she eventually had her citizenship revoked as a result of her outspokenness, Makeba consistently attempted to draw attention to the intolerance and injustice of the South African apartheid system. She returned to her home nation when apartheid fell but continued to campaign on other issues relating to human rights and justice. This documentary celebrates her life and legacy.
