Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s music is rooted in the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions. Their a cappella performances have touched audiences for over 50 years, earning them extensive praise around the world.
The group’s rich harmonies gained global recognition after their collaboration with Paul Simon on his album Graceland. However, the group was already extremely well-known in South Africa, where they were recognized as cultural ambassadors to the world by Nelson Mandela. With an infectious sense of joy, Ladysmith Black Mambazo spreads a message of peace, hope, and love at every concert through melody and dance.
