South African legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo bringing their stunning harmonies to Norwich Theatre Royal on Sunday.
South African legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo bringing their stunning harmonies to Norwich Theatre Royal on Sunday (7.30pm).
Their powerful harmonies were synonymous with the struggle against apartheid, with Nelson Mandela dubbing them 'South Africa's cultural ambassadors', following his release from prison.
The group sings a cappella isicathamiya and mbube music - loud, powerful choruses contrast with softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, combined with tightly-choreographed dance moves.
Support act Netsayi mixes her Zimbabwean roots with pop and folk.
