Miriam Makeba-Folk Songs From Africa

"I became aware of her through a book on linguistics. She is singing in Xhosa, which is one of the click languages. It is thought that the click languages are the most ancient language group on Earth. The first tune here is titled A Click Song AKA Qongqothwane, where the q's are alveolar clicks.
She was pretty popular in US in the 70s. I have no release info on this CD, but it sounds genuine to me: no synths, no drum programming, the instrumentation is sparse and authentic. So this is most likely a collection from her original 60s albums, or even if it's a recent (re-)recording, then it's just as good.
