Almost 30 years after they acquired international superstar status with Paul Simon’s Graceland album and after four Grammy Awards, Ladysmith Black Mambazo continues to tour the world as South Africa’s cultural ambassadors. With the power of gospel and the precision of Broadway, Ladysmith Black Mambazo is the undisputed king of mbube, South African a cappella singing. The group came together in the early 1960s, peacefully protesting apartheid through music, and continues to thrill audiences around the world with its strong, proud melodies harmonized in layers of call and response and its joyously energetic performances.
