Simangele Mashazi performing My Miriam Makeba Story

Simangele Mashazi is a rising star in South Africa. She performed the role of the young Miriam in the first musical about Mama Africa (touring US and SA). The experience deepened Sima’s admiration for Makeba’s music and the woman behind it. 

In this show, Sima shares the themes in Makeba’s music and life that touched her and bear similarities to her own journey. Sima includes songs of her own that relate to Makeba’s story. In ‘My Miriam Makeba Story’, Sima pays tribute to a historical figure who spoke truth through her lyrics and gave hope to so many, amidst her own struggles. “It has been an amazing experience portraying her and I have learned so much about her that I didn’t know,” Sima says. “I love how she used her voice to speak the truth of her reality and instigate change”. 

Expect world-famous hits like Phatha Phatha to less known gems like Suliram (an Indonesian lullaby) and expect to be mesmerized and inspired by the talent of a rising star, Sima Mashazi.
