With the power of gospel and the precision of Broadway, Ladysmith Black Mambazo is the undisputed king of mbube, South African a cappella singing. The multi-Grammy-winning group came together in the early 1960s and continues to thrill audiences around the world with its strong, proud melodies harmonized in layers of call and response.
Join Global Arts Live Executive Director and South African native Maure Aronson as he chats with Thulani Shabalala, Albert Mazibuko and Sibongiseni Shabalala of Ladysmith Black Mambazo about subjects that range from their early days of winning singing competitions to their Paul Simon collaboration and worldwide acclaim.
