Ladysmith Black Mambazo

The New York Times calls Ladysmith Black Mambazo “South Africa's long-running musical treasure,” and it’s easy to see why: for more than forty years, the group has married the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions to the sounds and sentiments of heartfelt gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched a worldwide audience representing every corner of the religious, cultural and ethnic landscape.

The group’s musical efforts over the past four decades have garnered praise and accolades within the recording industry, but also solidified their identity as a cultural force to be reckoned with. In the mid-1980s, Paul Simon visited South Africa and incorporated Black Mambazo’s rich harmonies into his album Graceland – a landmark 1986 recording that won the Grammy Award for Best Album and is considered seminal in introducing world music to mainstream audiences.
