Had a lovely LONG overdue visit backstage with my South African sisters Faith Kekana and Stella Khumalo after they performed with Angelique Kidjo at Carnegie Hall honoring Mama Africa - Miriam Makeba - last night. As many of you know Faith and Stella are responsible for all of the beautiful lush vocal soundscapes on Ownership, as well as my Zulu name and I haven't seen them since we launched Ownership in Jo'burg back in '09! EISH man you guys delivered (as always) last night (as did of curse Angelique and special guest Vusi Mahlasela). Anyway it was so heartwarming to be able to spend some time (but not enough) with them. Faith and Stella, madadewethu, ngiyanithanda kakhulu!
