Festival Details - "Ladysmith Black Mambazo"...

Start: Sunday, June 20, 2021 12:00AM
End: TBD

Part of Grace Jones' Meltdown

This event has been rescheduled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis: all tickets are valid for the new date.

We were very sorry to hear of the death of Ladysmith Black Mambazo founder Joseph Shabalala. In celebration of his life and music, these performances will go ahead.

For 60 years the 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 and have been touring the world ever since.

Their Grammy-nominated album Walking in the Footsteps of our Fathers honours their past as well as their future with joy, pride and passion radiating from every bar.

Nelson Mandela called the vocal group ‘South Africa’s cultural ambassadors’.

Their energetic performances combine loud, powerful choruses with softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, and tightly choreographed dance moves.

Support comes from jazz musician Muntu Valdo.

Muntu Valdo coined the term Sawa blues for his own music, which is rooted in blues and mixes African traditions with striking modernity and technical mastery. He has performed all over the world in many prestigious venues and has played alongside some of the great names of African and international music including Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Manu Dibango and Ali Farka Touré. His latest album, The One & The Many, received rave reviews and his upcoming album, Sawa Blue, is due to be released later this year.
