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 on the editorial team here at Africa Geographic Working here is a dream job for me. I was lucky enough to have had a semi-bush upbringing, where I discovered the freedom and sweet, abundant elixir in the air of the African bush. I have also since developed that annoyingly persistent global travel bug and have been lucky enough to travel to all the continents (barring Antarctica...one day I hope to ski there...yup, you heard right). But, in all my travels, the mother continent has tugged deeply at my roots, and I have since returned to share my love for her astoundingly beautiful and special places with those who are enchanted and drawn to her wild allure. Here, you'll find me attempting to do just that with you, from adventure travel to rustic bush camping, from wildlife to wildly beautiful people, from coastal exploration to delving into the delights of Africa's buzzing cities...the idea is to celebrate this special continent for all of its beauty!
