Dreaming Zenzile Reviews
The New York Times- Recommended
"...If you want to see a performer in full command of her instrument and her powers, take the F train to Second Avenue and walk the few blocks to New York Theater Workshop to savor Somi Kakoma in "Dreaming Zenzile," her tribute to the South African singer and activist Miriam Makeba, born Zenzile Miriam Makeba."
NY Theatre Guide- Recommended
"...There's a line at the beginning of Dreaming Zenzile, the new musical about South African singer Miriam Makeba, that goes, "Your voice will continue the fight for freedom long after you're gone." Writer/performer Somi Kakoma proves this to be true. Her poetic retelling of the music pioneer's life is simple without being underwritten, hopeful without being kitschy, and celebratory of Makeba's music as well as her activism, leaving the audience inspired to continue her fight for justice and equity."
