For more than 50 years, South Africa’s Ladysmith Black Mambazo have warmed the hearts of audiences worldwide with their uplifting vocal harmonies, signature dance moves and charming onstage banter. Since the world discovered their powerful a cappella vocals on Paul Simon’s Graceland album, the original members have welcomed a younger generation into their mission, passing along the tradition of storytelling and spreading a message of peace, love and harmony to millions of people the world over.
Now led by the four sons of group founder Joseph Shabalala, Ladysmith Black Mambazo is ever-evolving, with a deep respect for both their cultural and personal histories, and a long musical legacy. It was Nelson Mandela who dubbed them “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors to the world,” a designation the members carry with them to this day with the highest honor.
