Dreaming Zenzile is a musical about Makemba's life and career, centered around her rousing final concert. As she performs for an enthusiastic audience and raises their spirits along with their consciousness, her ancestors appear to take her through the memories connected to her music, allowing Makemba to go on a spiritual journey of reconciliation as she reaches the culmination of her career. Grammy-nominated international artist Somi Kakoma has written the musical and performs as Makemba, and she's accompanied by a live jazz band that plays both original music and new arrangements of Makemba's jazz, Afropop, and world music on stage.
