Because the Brussels Jazz Orchestra worked before with South African vocalist Tutu Puoane on various projects, they invited her to compose a program of songs from her homeland. As Miriam Makeba died in this period she decided to choose songs mostly from this great singer’s repertoire of Xhosa and Zulu songs. ‘Mama Africa’ is the first album where Tutu Puoane is the lead vocalist of a big band. Seven arrangers were picked, mostly musicians from the BJO. They turned the music into sparkling renditions. The combination of her sublime voice, the quality of the BJO’s musicians and the beautiful arrangements turn this album into a worthy tribute to South African music and culture and to Miriam Makeba.
