The Academy is proud to collaborate with the EFG London Jazz Festival to mark the 10th anniversary of the death of the iconic Miriam Makeba. The Academy Big Band appears alongside South African vocalist Tutu Puoane in presenting her tribute to Makeba, ‘Mama Africa’. Celebrating the amazing legacy of song and rhythm in some stunning new arrangements, this project was first recorded with the Brussels Jazz Orchestra and went on to win a South African Music Award for Best Traditional Jazz Album of 2011.
