Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Grammy award and October/ November 2009 tour
The world may have lost Mariam Makeba, but it's not all bad news....
The South African Isicathamiya and Mbube male choral group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, is still alive and kicking!
Ladysmith Black Mambazo, founded in 1960, who have worked with the likes of Sarah McLachlan, Michael Jackson and Paul Simon, have just announced an extensive tour of the UK for the autumn.
The tour will begin on October 15th at the Cambridge Corn Exchange, via Birmingham Symphony Hall (October 16th), Oxford New Theatre (October 22nd) , London Cadogan Hall (October 23rd and 24th), Nottingham Royal Concert Hall (October 31st), Liverpool Philharmonic Hall (November 1st), Manchester Bridgewater Hall (November 4th), Glasgow Royal Concert Hall (November 10th), Brighton Dome (November 20th), among others, and end on November 23rd in Crawley.
Tickets are on sale now at all venues, except for Norwich, Dartord and Dunstable, which will go on sale next month.
Last week, Ladysmith Black Mambazo won a Grammy (their third) for Best Traditional World Music Album, with their 2008 release Ilembe: Honoring Shaka Zulu.
