Ladysmith Black Mambazo
See Article: Soundbites: WORLD MUSIC WEEK (UNOFFICIALLY)
Like a lot of people, I suspect, I still remember the first time I saw Ladysmith Black Mambazoperform. During the making of Paul Simon's Graceland album, on which the South African a cappella choral group performed, Simon appeared as the musical guest on an episode of Saturday Night Liveand he brought Ladysmith with him. Decked out in their traditional garb, the group sang and danced behind Simon on the future album highlight "Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes." It was the first time the song had been performed live (and in front of millions of people, mind), the first exposure most people had to Ladysmith and their music. And it was just plain incredible.
