Ladysmith Black Mambazo

 

Exquisite harmonies that blend the intricate rhythms and melodies  of their native South Africa with the sounds and sentiments of gospel, all delivered in classic a cappella fashion (not to mention having one of the coolest names around): Ladysmith Black Mambazo.  

You might have heard them on Paul Simon's Graceland, but there's so much more than that.  So tune in to the Wildflowers Cafe Monday morning at 10 to hear a lot more from this most uplifting of groups.

The nine voices of Vocal Point extend the musical possibilities far beyond the capabilities of a traditional four-part quartet. The ensemble does not use any musical instruments; instead, they adapt a song’s complex instrumentation into an original vocal reaction. Audience members have been known to mistake the complex sound s for musical instruments during a performance. After the show, Vocal Point will bring their “Maximum A Cappella" to the Fairfield Square at 12 noon for a special Live on the Square performance.
