I was sorry to hear of the recent death of Sathima Bea Benjamin, a South African who became a world-renowned jazz vocalist, composer, and activist during her lifetime. She was 76 when she died at her home in Cape Town.
The singer was featured in a GMC album review back in 2008, and you can read that by clicking here:
I’ve also added a song from that album below, and a later video below that.
