Now back home in South Africa, Makeba hadn't done much recording in the 1990s prior to this release, so Homeland amounts to a way of introducing herself to new audiences and updating older fans. Alas, the voice of the mighty Makeba, who was in her late sixties when this CD was recorded, frequently sounds worn and quavery (these sessions may have been an aberration, for she could still summon much of her spine-chilling power of old at the Hollywood Bowl in summer 2000). But for those who followed her turbulent career through the struggles over apartheid, it will be heartwarming to learn that she has finally found some measure of peace in her life. The English lyrics (others are sung in Zulu) sing about coming home, healing broken hearts, living for love, and children. In the album's most touching gesture, Makeba's granddaughter, Zenzi Lee, aimed the lyrics of the title track right at her; the dauntless freedom fighter sounds so glad to be home. As a memory refresher, you also get "Pata Pata 2000," yet another retooled edition of her international hit from 1967, not radically different from previous versions except that Lee lends a hand with the lead vocals. The backing tracks are mostly low-key, controlled, contemporary in feeling; they don't ignite, but they don't get in the South African diva's way either. - by Richard S. Ginell, AMG

Lovely cd. Favorite tracks: Lindelani, homeland, pata pata… This cd is beautiful. Makeba's rich mature voice overwhelms and instrument, so it is nice there's at least one song of her w/ only percussion & light background. Some of the songs slightly "lite rocked" world music, but the wonderful vocals almost make that disappear! Believe me, I detest lite rock world music, but it's a great album. If you like more home grown and less synth try her Africa album. MANY wonderful tracks. Also, the case is wonderfully done and the words are printed for all the songs. (just nice to know!) - by A Customer, Amazon.com
