South Africa's Ladysmith Black Mambazo To Play Music Box
South Africa's multi-Grammy winning export, Ladysmith Black Mambazo will be making a rare Cleveland appearance this Wednesday, February 28th, at the Music Box Supper Club.
Founded in 1960 by Joseph Shabalala, the male a capella group gained international acclaim when the group backed up Paul Simon on his huge 1986 offering, Graceland.
Nelson Mandela, shortly after his 1991 release from prison, called Ladysmith "South Africa's cultural ambassadors," recognizing the importance that the group had in bringing awareness to both South Africa's political climate of apartheid as well as the "Isicathamiya" style of singing for which the Zulu culture are known.
Since 1988, the outfit has won five Grammys, most recently for 2018's Shaka Zulu Revisited: 30th Anniversary Celebration.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo takes the stage at Cleveland's Music Box Supper Club at 7:30 this Wednesday evening. Doors open at 5:30.
