Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Newark, New Jersey - New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents the five-time GRAMMY-winning a cappella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo – “South Africa’s Cultural Ambassadors to the world” – makes a welcome return to NJPAC.

Nelson Mandela once famously labeled Ladysmith Black Mambazo “South Africa’s Cultural Ambassadors to the World,” and that description has continued to follow this acclaimed, all-male ensemble through a career that’s repeatedly taken them to the top of the world music charts.

Since they were first introduced to an international audience on Paul Simon’s classic 1986 Graceland LP, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has gone on to earn a whopping 19 GRAMMY Award nominations and five wins, the most recent this year for “Best World Music Album” for Shaka Zulu Revisited.

Tickets to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo go on sale Friday, June 1st at 10 AM. For tickets visit or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or the NJPAC Box Office.
