‹ Back to What's On Ladysmith Black Mambazo

1 - 3 Aug 2017

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 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 worked with them in his 1986 Graceland album. The group combine powerful choruses and softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, with tightly-choreographed dance moves. 

Early booking strongly recommended.

Though they sing entirely a cappella, their songs have a rhythmic spring, and their dance moves are light-footed and elegant
