Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Tuesday, March 13 @ 8 p.m., Mainstage Theatre

“It isn’t merely the grace and power of their dancing or the beauty of their singing that rivets the attention, but the sheer joy and love that emanates from their being.” — Paul Simon.

With the power of gospel and the precision of Broadway, Ladysmith Black Mambazo is the undisputed king of mbube, South African a cappella singing. Perhaps best known for their collaboration with artists Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder and Sarah McLachlan, Ladysmith Black Mambazo is a Grammy Award-winning musical force unlike any other. Focusing on the power of the human voice, each performance by Ladysmith Black Mambazo is electrifying, offering audiences the opportunity to experience the intricate rhythms and exquisite harmonies of a musical tradition that grew out of oppression in South Africa but now celebrates the resilience of the human spirit.
