Why go and see it?

Nelson Mandela called Ladysmith “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors”.

The group sing a cappella in a joyously energetic performance that combines loud powerful choruses with softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, and tightly choreographed dance moves. Featured on Paul Simon’s Graceland album, they have toured the world since, and were reunited with Paul Simon a few years ago in the Graceland world tour. For this tour, the group will be celebrating the life and music of their founder Joseph Shabalala.

Opening set from Cameroon-born Muntu Valdo - whose music is rooted in the blues, mixing African traditions with striking modernity and technical mastery. His mesmerizing solo set juxtaposes his raw, passionate voice and intensely emotive melodies, intricate African guitar lines with an ingenious use of loops and effects to create a sun-kissed groove, Sawa Blues - the title of his forthcoming album.
