Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Jan 18-Jan 19, 2010


Tuesday 8pm & 10pm shows $25

Wednesday 8pm & 10pm shows $25

For more than three decades, the story of Ladysmith Black Mambazo has been just as much about physicality and choreography as it has been about brilliant vocal harmonies. After a series of records throughout the '70s and '80s, the group rocketed to international fame in 1986 with their appearance on Paul Simon's landmark recording, Graceland. For this Grammy-winning a cappella group that merges South African music and dance traditions with Christian messages of compassion, love and global harmony, the music alone is only half the story. Simply put, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has to be seen to be understood.
