Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Grammy Award nomination

South African musical mavericks and world-renowned traditional acapella group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo have done it again. Their latest release, “Songs From A Zulu Farm,” has been nominated for yet another Grammy Award in the category of Best World Music CD. This is their 16th Grammy Award nomination and an extra-special one in that there are only four nominees this year, as opposed to ten in previous years. Well done to them on this remarkable achievement!

Holly Meadows interviewed them recently. Read the interview.

They are currently on tour in the United States and Canada, with gigs set for Europe towards the middle of the year. Check out their tour dates here.

Hey, I’m Rich . I’m a solid believer that adventure is wired into the heart and soul of every human being alive. I consider myself lucky that I’m in tune with my own wiring, and carry the burden of an unrelenting wanderlust. While I like nothing more than to get my fix of adrenalin and taste the elixir of life at its sweetest, I’m deeply passionate about Africa and all its precious places, people and wildlife. After studying Journalism at university, I’m currently interning at Africa Geographic with Safari , an opportunity that I am tremendously excited about. I’m a keen writer and photographer, and my goal is to use my talents to develop my voice on conservation issues in our beautiful continent. Follow me on twitter @richpearcephoto
