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 am a long time acapella enthusiast and soprano singer. This would be an opportunity to get out of my PNW music-scene bubble and try something new!
