  1. I’ve heard that Miriam Makeba has hurt herself and can’t travel. She therefore will not be performing on June 14. Is this true?

  2. Sibongile Khumalo, June 14, 8PM
    A fall sustained by Miriam Makeba late last week has forced the cancellation of her U.S. dates. Although it makes her deeply sorry to disappoint her loyal fans, Ms. Makeba’s doctors are not allowing her to travel. Makeba’s fellow South African and renowned vocalist Sibongile Khumalo has agreed to step in and will travel to the U.S. specifically to perform at Celebrate Brooklyn!
