Miriam Makeba remixed

Absolutely loving the reminder and remix (not so sure about that club version) of Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata by Milk & Sugar “Hi-a ma”. A beautiful day in Joburg – sun shining, sky is blue – and it’s a good way to keep your mind off today’s news which includes the passing of the visionary Steve Jobs, a sad Desmond Tutu whose 80th birthday party has been spoiled by the government’s flawed and ugly decision to not permit the Dalai Lama into the country and the bizarre revelations in this morning’s The Times about in cash-in-transit-heist money finding its way into ANC branch politics. Strange days indeed.
