July 23 - Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Ladysmith Black  Mambazo

South Africa’s Five Time GRAMMY Award winning singing group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, was founded in the early 1960s by Joseph Shabalala, then a teenage Zulu farm boy living on the lands just outside the small town of Ladysmith. When Nelson Mandela was released from prison, in 1990, he stated that Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s music was a powerful message of peace that he listened to while in jail. When Mandela was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, in 1993, he asked the group to join him at the ceremony in Oslo. It was Mandela who called Ladysmith Black Mambazo “South Africa’s Cultural Ambassadors to the World.”  Ladysmith Black Mambazo carries a message of Peace, Love and Harmony as they travel the world year after year. They bring this uplifting message, in song and dance, to every theater they perform in. We hope you will join them in this intimate setting as they share their unique voices and stories.
