For over 50 years, South Africa’s Four Time GRAMMY Award winners, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has warmed the hearts of audiences worldwide with their uplifting vocal harmonies, signature dance moves and charming onstage banter. With a deep respect for both their cultural and personal history, Ladysmith Black Mambazo is ever-evolving with an eye toward their long musical legacy.

Since the world discovered their powerful a cappella vocals from Paul Simon’s Graceland album, the original members have welcomed a younger generation in their mission, passing along the tradition of storytelling and spreading a message of peace, love, and harmony to millions of people the world over. The younger members, led by the four sons of group founder Joseph Shabalala, who joined the group almost twenty five years ago, have infused the group with a youthful energy and the promise of a bright future. It was Nelson Mandela who anointed the group “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors to the world,” a designation the members carry with them with the highest honor. In their Fall 2017 release entitled Songs Of Peace & Love For Kids & Parents, Ladysmith Black Mambazo shares their uplifting message with audiences of all ages through their music and the stories behind the songs.

    I do so hope I win the tickets. I spent a part of my childhood in West Africa-Nigeria to be exact. It isn’t South Africa, but SA is closer than Portland to Nigeria and to soak in some of their sunlight and rhythms and harmonies would make me mighty happy!

    While I have been fortunate to see them twice, my daughter wasn’t old enough for me to take her, but now she is and I know she would greatly appreciate the chance to see them. They are absolutely amazing and their spirit brings out so many emotions in you when you see them perform.

    I would love to win tickets to this show! I’ve spent the past four months with my nose to the grindstone, applying to grad schools, and have had zero fun, zero social life. I just submitted my last application a few days ago and am ready to be a living, fun-having person again! This concert would be the perfect celebration for successfully completing an arduous process. Ladysmith has a very special place in my heart as my dad and I would always listen to their music on road trips.
    Thanks for giving away tickets to so many great events!

  26. Wendy January 18, 2018 at 2:51 pm #

    I have never seen them, would certainly love to!

  27. James January 18, 2018 at 2:52 pm #

    Been a fan since Paul Simon introduced them to us all.

  28. Hayley January 18, 2018 at 3:06 pm #
