Sathima Bea Benjamin – A Legendary Voice Stilled   Leave a comment

I was sorry to hear of the recent death of Sathima Bea Benjamin, a South sbbAfrican who became a world-renowned jazz vocalist, composer, and activist during her lifetime. She was 76 when she died at her home in Cape Town.

The singer was featured in a GMC album review back in 2008, and you can read that by clicking here:
