Pata Pata no more

About 3 weeks ago a friend send me a link to a youtube movie in which a 76-year old Miriam Makeba was shaking her booty to her classic 'Pata pata'. That's one of those songs that just keep coming back into my life, at least once a year, to spread its sunshine. A couple of days later i saw a poster for a concert she was going to do in Amsterdam, and thought it was a nice coincidence. Today i learned she passed away last sunday after a concert.

The link to this sun of a woman and the reason why now i'll always have association with big old booty swaying to this song is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6w1u8o9ZBc

Heard she passed on as well. I was really sad as her music just is like magic.
