R.I.P. to two ladies who sang their hearts out (and wore hats well).

Miriam Makeba (left), a giant figure in South Africa music, died November 9th after having a heart attack on stage. She was 76.

Yma Sumac (right), famed Peruvian singer, died November 1st at age 86.  She had colon cancer.

Check out Miriam singing, after the most amazing band intro ever:
