New Apple Music playlist: African Queens

Posted on September 30th, 2016 in Features, Recent posts by .


The late, great Miriam Makeba was universally known as ‘Mama Africa’ for both the warmth of her music and her courage and resilience in the face of adversity. An iconic figurehead for African womanhood, she rightly kicks off this playlist of divas and songbirds who have followed in her formidable footsteps, drawn from every music-rich corner of the African continent. Playlist by Nigel Williamson for Songlines. (Photo of Angelique Kidjo by Gilles Marie Zimmerman).
