Editorial Reviews

For more than three decades, the story of Ladysmith Black Mambazo has been just as much about physicality and choreography as it has been about brilliant vocal harmonies. For this GRAMMYr winning a cappella group that merges South African music and dance traditions with Christian messages of compassion, love and global harmony, the music alone is only half the story. Simply put, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has to be seen to be understood. Catch a visual glimpse of these icons of South African music and dance with Live! Recorded in Akron, Ohio, in 2008, the set captures not only fourteen songs performed on the stage of EJ Thomas Hall at the University of Akron, but also forty minutes of in-depth interviews with founder, leader and musical director Joseph Shabalala and other members of the group. Shabalala, a South African farmboy turned factory worker, first began gathering talented vocalists and arranging multi-layered and tightly woven harmonies in the early 1960s. After a series of records throughout the '70s and early '80s, the group rocketed to international fame in 1986 with their appearance on Paul Simon's landmark recording, Graceland. The thematic elements in Mambazo's music that appeal to South Africans, says Shabalala, are the same elements that appeal to a universal audience in all parts of the globe. In that sense, the group has come to be recognized as South Africa's musical ambassadors to the world

I never forget how deeply impressed I was when I first heard them singing with Paul Simon with beautiful their harmonious voices. I first enjoyed a CD by them back in the 90"s (after the Paul Simon "Graceland" CD came out) but it's much nicer to see them performing their songs. The sound quality of this DVD is excellent and their haunting refrains among their rhythmic movements to each song in this concert makes me deeply feel the heart of Africa as I listen. They also explain about their background and their motivation for what they do so it's a beautiful as well as an informative DVD about this wonderful performing group.

I watched the "Graceland" film and wanted to see more performances of Ladysmith Black Mombazo. This performance was simply great. It is good also to have what Shabalala describes as "the next generation of Black Mombazo" perform so well. As the old move out the young must be groomed to take their place. Exciting and heart warming performance.

I hate to say this, but actually a disappointment. Listening to them in concert in Atlanta once was fabulous, as was their feature on Paul Simon's vid.

This was just totally awesome! I almost forgot what they sounded like. Riveting. Those who have an open mind about music should listen.
