Following the very sad news about Joseph Shabalala death, Ladysmith Black Mambazo have confired that they will be celebrating the life and music of their founder Joseph in this concerts.
For sixty years Ladysmith Black Mambazo have sung powerful, uplifting songs that emote the struggles and passion of South Africa. Nelson Mandela called Ladysmith “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors”.
The group sing a cappella in a joyously energetic performance that combines loud powerful choruses with softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, and tightly choreographed dance moves. Featured on Paul Simon’s Graceland album, they have toured the world since, and were re-united with Paul Simon a few years ago in the Graceland world tour.
