Save the date. One of South Africa’s top singing groups, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, will perform in Lilongwe this summer.
The award-winning choral group is scheduled to perform in Lilongwe on August 31, according to organisers, Qoncept Creative.
“Indeed, on August 31 we are hosting Ladysmith Black Mambazo at Bingu International Conference Centre. Local acapella group Joyful Souls will curtain raise the show,” said the firm’s director Q Malewezi.
Qoncept Creative have gained a reputation for the top class entertainment shows that they have organised over the past two years—from Annie Kansiime’s comedy show, Oliver Mtukudzi’s music concert to Wambal Mkandawire’s album launch last weekend.
For their part, veteran all-male Ladysmith Black Mambazo has, over the years, collaborated with half the known music world—from Stevie Wonder to Dolly Parton to, most famously, Paul Simon on his classic 1988 album Graceland.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo has won multiple awards, including four Grammy Awards, the biggest awards in music, globally.
The group was formed by Joseph Shabalala in 1960 and later became one of South Africa’s most prolific recording artists, with their releases receiving gold and platinum disc honours.
