The Grammy Award-winning South African ensemble makes their fourth appearance in Koerner Hall. Founded in the early 1960s by the late Joseph Shabalala, they catapulted to global fame through their collaboration with Paul Simon on his album Graceland. In addition to their work with Paul Simon, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has recorded with Stevie Wonder, Dolly Parton, Sarah McLachlan, Josh Groban, Emmylou Harris, Melissa Etheridge, and many others.
“They are musical uniters and global boundary crossers and, especially now ... as the rest of the world has grown less connected, their warm-centered presence and harmonics both soothe and offer hope for a more empathetic world.” (The Chicago Tribune)
