Ladysmith Black Mambazo At Skidmore 3/9
South Africa’s Ladysmith Black Mambazo was launched into international spotlight when they sang with Paul Simon on his 1986 Graceland album. The group has been nominated 17 times, won five Grammy Awards, and has warmed the hearts of audiences worldwide with uplifting vocal harmonies, signature dance moves and charming stage presence.
They will perform at Skidmore College's Zankel Music Center in Saratoga Springs, NY on March 9th at 7:30 p.m.
Albert Mazibuko has been a member of Ladysmith Black Mambazo since 1969 and he joins us to discuss the music, Paul Simon, and the late Nelson Mandela.
