    I love Miriam Makeba. Pata Pata is my favorite song. I remember when as a child my father bringing home this album. We played it everyday as soon as we got home from school. Her music is about fun, social justice and love and brings back wonderful memories.
  • Great song!

    Great song. I heard it on a T.V. commercial and I quickly downloaded it! It took me back to 3rd grade when my dance instructor would play it in our African dance class. Sweet memories!!
  • Great Song!

    When I heard the "Pata Pata" single playing during a commercial on TV recently, I jumped up and smiled, remembering PE class in junior high, when we learned folk dancing. I lived in the hottest part of Southern California. This was one of the few times that physical education was fun. Our teacher busted out the phonograph and played the 78 record (maybe it was a 45) and taught us a dance to this song. It was a lot like the hustle, but more funky and funny. We wore green polyester shorts, green and white striped ringer tees, and tube socks. We danced on the blacktop between the handball and basketball courts. Sweat stung my eyes but I was smiling the whole time. Can't believe I found this on iTunes! Too cool!
  • An example of Miriam Makeba at her best.

    My family owns this album on Reel to Reel tape. Yes, you could buy commercial albums on reel to reel tape back in the day this was first released. It is a testament to how great this ENTIRE album is and how well it stands the test of time, both in individual parts and as a whole, that I have decided to buy it again in this new medium. It was my parents purchase the first go round and I grew up with it. I made a cassette copy to take with me on the go. I was considering breaking out the old machine and do a dub just to have it with me once more in the new digital age, since Warner and the other stake holders in this album were refusing to re-release it for so many years. I searched for a long time, first in record shops and all the places CD's have been sold over the years, and have infrequently checked iTunes a few times, when I remembered to, and it never came up as available anywhere, until today. Miriam is no longer with us in this world, but her great volume of work lives on. Those who got to see her live got the experience of a life time. An activist working for the change she wanted to see in the world, working through the medium of music, both at once pop-catchy and memorable and also enlightening, revealing and showing the kind of wisdom for the ages the world so sorely needs both in the time the album was recorded and today. A master of languages from her native continent, this collection of songs is replete with examples of many of the cultures and tongues spoken in Africa today and Miriam moves through them all deftly. She has love songs. And songs about the state of affairs in South Africa that pull no punches. For this kind of work she was expatriated for many years, but her vigilance paid off in her homeland; even though there is always more work to be done for justice to Human dignity, she saw many of her dreams come true. Thank you Miriam for such an awe inspiring voice. May it inspire us all to do what we can to make the world a better place for each other and leave us all with the time to enjoy the song and the dance.
