South African vocal powerhouse Ladysmith Black Mambazo play their first UK tour for many years
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.
'Truly great singing, balancing soulful ballads and traditional dance songs with exquisite and perfectly timed harmony work' (Guardian)
Mambazo sing powerful uplifting songs - Nelson Mandela called them "South Africa's cultural ambassadors" - and tour to celebrate Black History Month.
'It's not just their sound but their look and their athleticism. 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.' (4/5 stars, theartsdesk)
Their special guest is Cameroon-born guitarist and singer Muntu Valdo - an electrifying presence who combines loops with the blues.
