Details

Joyous South African music, as heard on Graceland.

The joyous and uplifting musical voices of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, referred to by Nelson Mandela as "South Africa’s cultural ambassadors," marry the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their Zulu traditions to the sounds and sentiments of gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience ever since Paul Simon first introduced them to the world with the Graceland album.

The group sing in a joyously energetic performance that combines powerful choruses, softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, and tightly-choreographed dance moves.
