Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has been delivering exuberantly energetic performances around the globe for decades.

Described by Nelson Mandela as 'South Africa's cultural ambassadors', Ladysmith Black Mambazo has been delivering exuberantly energetic performances around the globe for decades.

To complement its collaboration on Inala, it gives a special one-off concert that offers the chance to experience one of the world's finest vocal groups.

Combining traditional Zulu musical styles with gospel music, it contrasts powerful, passionate choruses with soft, soulful sweetness in quieter music, bringing a symphonic richness to its a cappella performances, all delivered with an infectious sense of rhythm and flamboyant dance moves.

Undulating rhythmic phrases that push and pull...harmonising that is both ethereal and earthy
