wonderful footage of Miriam Makeba just now closing Newsnight on BBC 2

Joe writes: Steve Wright also played Pata Pata today. God bless the BBC.

There are two wonderful pieces on other blogs commemorating Miriam - Heart on a Stick which has great links to audio and video (the track Nongqongqo is beautiful), and SoundRoots which includes a statement from Nelson Mandela. God bless the bloggers.

I saw that fantastic footage - apparently from a 1986 European concert. Can anyone identify the track?
