Since their earliest days in the 1960's, Ladysmith Black Mambazo
has shared the studio and stage with scores of artists from around
the world, representing just about every possible musical genre. The
South African a cappela gospel ensemble's appearance on Paul Simon's landmark Graceland album is probably the most widely-recognized of the group's cross-cultural collaborations, but Simon's 1986 Grammywinning recording is merely the tip of a much larger iceberg. Over the years, the group has demonstrated its melodic, harmonic and rhythmic versatility in recordings with an array of artists representing folk, rock, pop, soul, country, classical, hip-hop and world music. In each case, they have taken the work of a great artist and made it even better.
The group has assembled a two-disc set of recordings that capture
Ladysmith Black Mambazo s reach across the cultural divide and joining
hands with musicians from around the globe.
