The enthusism of Ladysmith Black Mambazo was infectious. The voices are so tightly knitted together it was astounding. The antics of the members through their movements kept the visual part of the show rivoting.
I'd highly recommend this show -
Quotes & Highlights
“An extraordinary sound experience” —_The Star _
For more than 40 years, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has combined the rhythms and harmonies of South Africa with the sounds and sentiments of Christian gospel music. The result is a musical and spiritual alchemy that has touched listeners representing every corner of the religious, cultural, and ethnic landscape. The group borrows from a traditional music called isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-ya), which developed in the mines of South Africa, where black workers toiled far from their homes and families — when they returned to their homeland, this inspirational music came with them.
