Ladysmith Black Mambazo
July 17, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Peoples Bank Theatre presents 4-time Grammy Award winners, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. This free performance is made possible with the support of the Ohio Arts Council and is in celebration of the start of the theatre’s new Spotlight Series of concerts and performances.
In 2014 Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the South African a cappella group formed by Joseph Shabalala during the 1960’s, was awarded their fourth Grammy Award for the CD Singing For Peace Around The World. Not just a CD title but a statement of the group’s career mission. It was Nelson Mandela who designated Ladysmith Black Mambazo “South Africa’s Cultural Ambassadors to the world.” It’s a title Ladysmith Black Mambazo holds quite dearly to their hearts. Nelson Mandela passed away just over a year ago and the group dedicated the Grammy Award to him. They have been celebrating Mandela’s message of peace at every concert they perform.
