The late South African singer Miriam Makeba was among the very first artists to popularize African music around the world. On the Wednesday edition of "Live and Local," we'll learn about an exhibition in Champaign that explores Makeba's music and image through recordings and artifacts. And we'll hear singer-songwriter Denise La Grassa, who will perform at the Sweet Corn Blues Festival in Normal this weekend.
