Letta Mbulu

Profile:
South African singer, born 23. August 1942 and raised in Soweto.

Already as a teenager she toured as part of the King Kong musical ensemble but left for the USA in the sixties due to the political environment back home, teaming up with Harry Belafonte and Cannonball Adderley. Her voice can also be heard on the soundtrack of the successful TV series "Roots".

Married to Caiphus Semenya, she returned to South Africa after 26 years of self-imposed exile.
