Ladysmith Black Mambazo's chorus of powerful harmonies emote the struggles and passion of South Africa.  After they employed their music to celebrate the end of the apartheid era, Nelson Mandela publicly called Ladysmith "South Africa's cultural ambassadors", following his release from prison.  The group sings a capella isicathamiya and mbube music - loud, powerful choruses contrast with softer, almost whispering chants where voices blend harmoniously, combined with tightly-choreographed dance moves that keep the singers on their toes.

"Truly great singing...balancing soulful ballads and traditional dance songs with exquisite and perfectly timed harmony work..." (The Guardian)

"Gorgeous harmonies from the South African vocal ensemble, best known for their work with Paul Simon on Graceland.  Though they sing entirely a cappella, their songs have a rhythmic spring, and their dance moves are light-footed and elegant" Daily Telegraph

Netsayi is one of the UK's most original talents with a live reputation to match. Following the success of her debut album, Chimurenga Soul her new album Chosen Ones, released this summer, mixes her Zimbabwean roots with pop and folk to tell unfailingly moving tales of an independent African - of hope and despair, love and loss, of home and abroad.
