Why go and see it?

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

Since they shot to global stardom on Paul Simon's Graceland album, Mambazo have been recognised as one of the world's great vocal groups.

Production shot

Mambazo sing powerful uplifting songs and tour to celebrate Black History Month.

Truly great singing, balancing soulful ballads and traditional dance songs with exquisite and perfectly timed harmony work
- The Guardian
Gorgeous harmonies from the South African vocal ensemble, best known for their work with Paul Simon on Graceland. Though they sing entirely a cappella, their songs have a rhythmic spring, and their dance moves are light footed and elegant
- Daily Telegraph

Their special guest is Cameroon-born guitarist and singer Muntu Valdo - an electrifying presence who combines loops with the blues.

What the critics say

Their line-up has evolved... but the South Africans’ close knit harmonies are just as faultless as they were on Paul Simon’s Graceland, which, in 1986, brought them international fame
- The Telegraph
They bounded on, promising an evening of “peace, love and harmony” from South Africa to the world and surely no one failed to pick up the joyous vibes as they sang and joshed with one another, and the audience.
