Miriam Makeba – Click Song

Today’s song of the day comes from South Africa via Stockholm in a live performance from 1966.  In a separate interview, Ms. Makeba relates “Everywhere we go people ask me, how do you make that noise?  It used to offend me because it’s not a noise, it’s my language.”  She laughs as she explains this and goes on smiling as she demonstrates the pronunciation of some words.  Click on her picture to see and hear ‘Click Song’ and enjoy.
