LONDON Nell's Jazz and Blues

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.
They have just won their fifth Grammy for the classic re-recording of their breakthrough album Shaka Zulu.
‘Truly great singing, balancing soulful ballads and traditional dance songs with exquisite and perfectly timed harmony work’ The Guardian
