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.”.
