    Ladysmith Black Mambazo & Sweet Honey in the Rock

    Ladysmith Black Mambazo – led by founder and leader Joseph Shabalala – celebrates over fifty years of joyous and uplifting music. Within this music are the intricate rhythms and harmonies of their native South African musical traditions. In those years, the a cappella vocal group has created a musical and spiritual spirit that has touched a worldwide audience. Their musical efforts over the past five decades have garnered praise and accolades from a wide body of people, organizations and countries.

    Paul Simon incorporated the group’s rich tenor/alto/bass harmonies into his famous Graceland album and produced their first worldwide release, Shaka Zulu – thereby introducing world music to mainstream audiences. This four-time Grammy Award winning group has been nominated again for “Best World Music Album of 2015” for their CD Music from Inala.

    With a worldwide tour in 2016, they will make a stop in Kettering to perform their rich and powerful harmonies at Fraze Pavilion.

    Sweet Honey in the Rock has maintained a rich and distinguished legacy as one of the most revered and treasured a cappella ensembles in contemporary music. Over the past four decades the Grammy Award nominated group has stayed true to its adventurous and diverse mixture of blues, African, jazz, gospel and R&B music, with more recent excursions into symphonic music and collaborations into the dance/theater genre. Last year they celebrated their 40th Anniversary performing a series of special performances across the nation.
