When: August 07, 2022 8:00pm
Headshot of Ladysmith Black Mambazo

For 60 years, South Africa's Ladysmith Black Mambazo has warmed the hearts of audiences worldwide with uplifting vocal harmonies, signature dance moves and charming onstage banter. With a deep respect for both their cultural and personal history, the five-time Grammy Award winners are ever-evolving with an eye toward their long musical legacy. Since the world discovered their powerful a cappella vocals from Paul Simon's "Graceland" album, the original members have welcomed a younger generation in their mission, passing along the tradition of storytelling and spreading a message of peace, love and harmony to millions of people the world over.

The late former South African president Nelson Mandela designated the group "South Africa's cultural ambassadors to the world," a title the members carry with them with the highest honor. In 2018 the group received two Grammy Award nominations for two separate albums, a first in the history of world music. These two nominations brought their career total to 19 Grammy Award nominations.

This event is presented in partnership with the Rialto Theatre.
