Ladysmith Black Mambazo 2018
January 20th, 2018
Four-time Grammy winning group Ladysmith Black Mambazo is back by popular demand! The South African group has toured worldwide for more than 50 years to spread a message of peace. Introduced to many Americans on Paul Simon’s 1986 album Graceland, the a cappella ensemble is best known for uplifting and rhythmic vocal harmonies. Maintaining a deep respect for their Zulu culture and history, Ladysmith continues to evolve. Newer members have infused the group with youthful energy, and Ladysmith founder Joseph Shabalala looks to these young men to carry on his dream to “keep South Africa alive in people’s hearts.” Join them for the evening, and leave the theatre with your heart full and your spirit lifted.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo is presented by Anchorage Concert Association.
