Bio
During the 1950s, The Skylarks, an all-female South African band, was formed by Miriam Makeba, who became a prominent figure. They were at one point the most celebrated black singing group in the country and performed as The Sunbeams. Their music was a fusion of South African rhythms and jazz. After holding auditions, the initial Skylarks lineup included Johanna Radebe, Mary Rabotapi, and Mummy Girl Nketle, with Makeba as the group's leader. They achieved success with jazz hits like 'Hush,' 'Inkoma Zodwa,' and 'Hamba Bekile.' Although record sales weren't officially documented, it's estimated that the group sold approximately 100,000 records. The Skylarks disbanded when Makeba departed for the United States.
