Description DM1999081806:DM1999081805:SAED:MUSIC:THEATRE:PERSONALITY:1956 - Rehearsals with the Manhattan Brothers - (Left to right: Nathan 'Dambuza' Mdledle, Miriam Makeba, Rufus Khoza, Joe Mogotsi, Ronnie Sehume and pianist Fix Qinta.) For 21 years now they have been South Africa's Kings of Song. In November, 1955, at the Bantu Men's Social Centre, Johannesburg the Manhattan Brothers celebrated 21 years in Show Business. The Manhattan Brothers discovered a great voice in Miriam Makeba. She was just a small-town girl with a voice, which was about all she had. They saw possibilities in her and signed her for a year.
