Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2013, Ladysmith Black Mambazo—led by founder and leader Joseph Shabalala—has a musical style that combines the joyous and uplifting rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions to the sounds and sentiments of Christian gospel music. In the mid-1980s, Paul Simon visited South Africa and incorporated Black Mambazo’s rich tenor/alto/bass harmonies into his Graceland album—a landmark 1986 recording that was considered seminal in introducing world music to mainstream audiences. A year later, Simon produced Black Mambazo’s first U.S. release, Shaka Zulu, which won a Grammy® Award in 1988. Since then, the group has been awarded two more Grammy® Awards and has been nominated a total of 15 times including a nomination for their most recent CD release, Songs From A Zulu Farm.
