“You don’t go to a Ladysmith Black Mambazo show for innovation; you go to be reminded that the human voice is the most beautiful sound on Earth.” —Washington Post
For 45 years, the voices of Ladysmith Black Mambazo have married the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions to the sounds and sentiments of gospel music. The a cappella group became internationally famous when Paul Simon featured them on his 1986 album Graceland. They tour the world regularly and have won three Grammy Awards. At their Meany Hall concert, they will feature favorites from their catalogue as well as selections from Songs From A Zulu Farm, their most recent release which has been nominated for a 2011 Grammy Award.
