The Music Center
Ladysmith Black Mambazo

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.The group’s name comes from founder Joseph Shabalala’s hometown of Ladysmith, “Black” is in reference to strong oxen, and “Mambazo” is the Zulu word for chopping axe, a symbol of the group’s vocal ability to clear the path to success.The group sings traditional music called isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-ya), which developed in the mines of South Africa.Ladysmith Black Mambazo has recorded more than 70 albums and earned 19 Grammy nominations and 5 Grammy Award wins.
