Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Music Ladysmith Black Mambazo

A favorite of the late great Nelson Mandela, Ladysmith Black Mambazo traveled with the future South African president, at his request, when he went to Oslo, Norway to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. One year later they were singing at the inauguration of the newly elected President. After many more special appearances with the South African icon, Mandela proclaimed the group South Africa's Cultural Ambassadors to the World. In 2014 founder, Joseph Shabalala, retired after over fifty years of leading his group. Joseph passed the leadership torch to his sons Thulani, Sibongiseni, Thamsanqa Shabalala, all who joined Ladysmith Black Mambazo in 1993. Joseph's sons will carry the group into the future for decades to come. The group sings of peace, of love and for people to live in harmony. They do so on every album and from every concert stage that they experience the rousing and joyous music of this gospel choir.
