Ladysmith Black Mambazo
COVENTRY Warwick Arts Centre ( Butterworth Hall)
Ladysmith Black Mambazo are one of the world’s greatest and most distinctive groups. For over fifty years the legendary a cappella male choir have invoked the soul of South Africa with their intricate rhythms and harmonies and powerful, uplifting songs.
They shot to global stardom after featuring on Paul Simon’s Graceland album, and have been touring the world ever since. Their Grammy-nominated 2016 album Walking in the Footsteps of our Fathers honours their past as well as their future with joy, pride and passion radiating from every bar.
‘Truly great singing, balancing soulful ballads and traditional dance songs with exquisite and perfectly timed harmony work’ The Guardian
