ABOUT THE SHOW

At her final concert, South African musical legend and activist Miriam Makeba delivers the performance of her life, raising the conscience and the consciousness of a people. But the ancestors are calling—transporting her through the music and fractured memories of her past on a spiritual journey of reconciliation. Written and performed by Grammy-nominated international music sensation Somi, this world-premiere musical is an electrifying portrait of a revolutionary artist’s singular voice and vision.
