Since Harry Belafonte and Miriam Makeba had appeared together in concert frequently in the early '60s, customers spying an LP called An Evening with Belafonte/Makeba might reasonably have assumed that the record would contain a joint live performance by the two, and that might help explain why this album charted in the Top 100 despite its challenging material. To begin with, it is not a live album, but rather a studio recording. And it isn't so much a duo album, for the most part, as a joint album; Belafonte and Makeba perform together on only two tracks, "Train Song" and "Cannon." Otherwise, they split up the selections, each appearing on five.
An Evening with Belafonte/Makeba is a Grammy Award-winning 1965 album by Harry Belafonte and Miriam Makeba. It was the second outcome of the long lasting collaboration between Belafonte and Makeba, the first being the appearance of Makeba in the song Just One More Dance on Belafonte's 1960 album, Belafonte Returns to Carnegie Hall.
Despite the title, just two of the tracks in this album are actually duets, while all the others are either sang by Belafonte or Makeba alone.
In the mid 1960s, Belafonte was very active in supporting emerging African artists as well as making African music known worldwide, and this album is an example of this activity. It includes classical African songs like Malaika (with the english title My Angel) as well as songs in African languages such as Zulu, Sotho and Swahili. –Wikipedia
Bongi Makeba (20 December 1950 – 1985) was a singer/songwriter and the only child of South African singer Miriam Makeba.
Makeba was born in South Africa. She recorded only one album: Bongi Makeba, Blow On Wind (pläne-records) before she died of complications during childbirth in 1985, and is buried in Guinea. Some of her songs could be heard years later in her mother's repertoire. wikipedia
