I’m going to start posting interesting facts that I come across. As I am South African, I’m starting with South Africa.
Miriam Makeba was the first South-African to win a Grammy.
She received the Grammy Award for Best Folk Recording in 1966 together with Harry Belafonte for ‘An Evening With Belafonte/Makeba’ (http://www.trulysouthafrican.com).
Happy Birthday Miriam Makeba!
