Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s rich harmonies have become synonymous with Paul Simon’s seminal album Graceland. While Graceland served as the groups’ introduction to mainstream audiences, Ladysmith Black Mambazo was already extremely well known in their native South Africa and were designated “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors to the world” by Nelson Mandela. With an infectious sense of joy, Ladysmith Black Mambazo spreads a message of peace, hope, and love at every concert through melody and dance.
