Ladysmith Black Mambazo
+ Muntu Valdo
Part of Pop & Contemporary
Ladysmith Black Mambazo is one of the world’s greatest and most distinctive vocal groups. For sixty years the legendary a cappella male choir have invoked the soul of South Africa with their intricate rhythms and harmonies and powerful, uplifting songs.
Since they shot to global stardom on Paul Simon’s Graceland album, Mambazo have been recognised as one of the world’s great vocal groups.
Mambazo sing powerful uplifting songs – Nelson Mandela called them “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors” – and tour to celebrate Black History Month.
‘It’s not just their sound but their look and their athleticism. They bounded on, promising an evening of “peace, love and harmony” from South Africa to the world and surely no one failed to pick up the joyous vibes as they sang and joshed with one another, and the audience.’ (★★★★☆ theartsdesk)
Their special guest is Cameroon-born guitarist and singer Muntu Valdo – an electrifying presence who combines loops with the blues.
