“It isn’t merely the grace and power of their dancing or the beauty of their singing that rivets the attention, but the sheer joy and love that emanates from their being.” —Paul Simon

Very few artists evoke a feeling of place as remarkably as Ladysmith Black Mambazo in conjuring the moods of their native South Africa. Their voices soar, quake, and hum in an enchanting chorus of rich brilliance, simultaneously haunting and elating. Assembled in the early ‘60s by leader Joseph Shabalala, the group shot to international fame for their singing on Paul Simon’s seminal 1986 album, Graceland. In a career that’s produced over 50 albums, Ladysmith have won four Grammy Awards and have been nominated for 16, including a 2016 nomination for Best World Music Album. Ladysmith Black Mambazo last performed at the Flynn in 2013, when the group celebrated their 50th anniversary together.

Presented in association with the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, Diversity, and Multicultural Affairs through the UVM President’s Initiative for Diversity.
