Ladysmith Black Mambazo

This is a past event which has now ended.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo are one of the world’s greatest and most distinctive groups. For over fifty years the legendary a cappella male choir have evoked the soul of South Africa with their intricate rhythms and harmonies and powerful, uplifting songs. They shot to global stardom after featuring on Paul Simon’s Graceland album, and have been touring the world ever since.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo won a Grammy Award in January 2018 for their album Shaka Zulu Revisited, this is the fifth Grammy Award the group has won in their long and varied career. On winning the award, the members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo said “This is the highest honour we can receive from the music profession. It is humbling to know that this fifth Grammy Award, is the most any World Music group has ever received.”.

‘Truly great singing, balancing soulful ballads and traditional dance songs with exquisite and perfectly timed harmony work’ The Guardian

Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May Festival and our year-round arts education work, focusing on children and young people, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk and the region.

This year we begin an exciting new initiative, Festival Connect & Create that will bring creative opportunities to those schools and communities with least provision. Creativity transforms people’s lives. It builds cohesive communities, develops vital skills and supports health and wellbeing. We want more people to have access to creative opportunities.

Please consider donating to support and develop this work. With your help we can increase access to the life changing power of the arts.
