Last night Miriam Makeba died at age 76
Miriam Zenzi Makeba was born in Johannesburg 1932_march_04. Her mother was a Swazi sangoma and her father, who died when she was six, was a Xhosa. In keeping with tradition, her full name contains the first names of her male ancestors followed by a one- or two-word description of their character. So in full : Zensile Makeba Qgwashu Nguvama Yiketheli Nxgowa Bantana Balomzi Xa Ufnu Ubajabulisa Ubaphekeli Mbiza Yotshwala Sithi Xa Saku Qgiba Ukutja Sithathe Izitsha Sizi Khabe Singama Lawu Singama Qgwashu Singama Nqamla Nqgithi.
Miriam Makeba died in the early hours of this morning (2008_november_10) in Castel Volturno, near Caserta, Italy, of a heart attack, shortly after taking part in a concert organized to support writer Roberto Saviano in his stand against the Camorra, a mafia-like organisation.
Famous hits were Pata Pata & The Click Song (Qongqothwane in Xhosa), both on this compilation LP.

The comment is the place to be.
'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.
Pass to extract the file : 081110
The file is a small 30MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.
The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.
When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !
Direct link (after that go to the plain comment of this 2008_november article !) : JeansMusicBlog
Also possible : just click the 'post a comment' section here and you are able to copy/paste !
....And while you are there you might as well give a comment yourself....
