Legendary South African music group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, will be debuting with their first ever live performance on Malawi soil on the night of August 29.
The historic show is slated for the Bingu International Conference Center (BICC) in Lilongwe, courtesy of Qoncept Creative.
The group, which is currently on tour to China, weeks after touring the United Kingdom, confirmed their Malawi trip via Twitter this week.
“Yes Africa, we are headed to Malawi on August 29,” tweeted the multi- award winning a cappella group to their 26,000+ followers.
At their Lilongwe show, the group will be supported by Malawi’s own a cappella choral group, the Joyful Souls.
Ladysmith Black Mambazo was formed in the early 1960’s and carved a truly unique soulful African sound.
With a musical discography of over 50 albums, Ladysmith Black Mambazo have received numerous accolades including two Grammy Awards and two nominations. They have also received an Academy Award nomination.
Their influence has led to their contributing soundtrack material for a number of films including The Lion King Part II, Coming to America, Marlon Brando’s A Dry White Season, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Cry The Beloved Country and Invictus.
