"Inala features choral legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo in this unique artistic collaboration with multi award-winning choreographer Mark Baldwin. Featuring current and former members of the Royal Ballet and Rambert, this critically acclaimed production embraces an exhilarating fusion of South African and Western cultures live on stage.
Four time Grammy Award-winners Ladysmith Black Mambazo first rose to worldwide prominence with Paul Simon's Graceland album. INALA's original score is composed and performed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo, led by Joseph Shabalala and Ella Spira, blending the intricate rhythms and infectious harmonies of their native musical roots with live percussion, piano and strings. Mark Baldwin's richly visceral choreography unites Zulu traditions with classical ballet and contemporary dance, performed by an exceptional company of 18 dancers and singers."
