AllMusic Review by

The soundtrack to the Jonathan Demme-produced documentary account of the trials and triumphs of South African leader Nelson Mandela includes traditional African folk material like "Mmalo-We," and 1950s big-band hits such as "Sip N' Fly," and protest songs like "Toyi Toyi Mix." It also includes latter-day contributions from the Specials and Johnny Clegg & Savuka.
