Friday – Ladysmith Black Mambazo in Concert

Dominican University will be hosting Ladysmith Black Mambazo on  Saturday, February 8 in the Lund Auditorium at 7:30 PM.   Ladysmith Black Mambazo  is an all-male a cappella group from South Africa singing isicathamiya harmonies. The group formed during the 60’s by Joseph Shabalala, making their breakthrough as part of the Paul Simon’s Graceland project and soon became one of South Africa’s most prolific recording artists. The group has already been nominated  for 13 Grammy Awards, winning 3 since 2009.

Ladysmith values the importance of ensuring that the young South Africans maintain their isicathamiya traditions through their voices and melodies as well as the importance of being in the post-apartheid time. Dominican University is very excited to welcome the group to campus coming next month.
