Manhattan Brothers


The Manhattan Brothers was a popular South African singing group in the 1940s and 1950s, during the Apartheid Era.

Members of the group included Joe Mogotsi, Ronnie Sehume, Rufus Khoza, the late Nathan Mdledle, and Miriam Makeba. Makeba, who went on to international fame, started her career with The Manhattan Brothers and was part of the group for much of the 1950s. Read more on Last.fm
