Ladysmith Black Mambazo plays Wingate tonight

Posted By on Fri, Feb 17, 2012 at 12:37 PM

At this point, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has become almost a world-music cliché — the stereotype for Americans who like their Mbube with a little sugar to make it go down more easily. That doesn’t mean it’s not worth catching the legendary South African group's spectacular voices any time they perform in the area, and tonight they’re performing near Charlotte. The vocal group, popularized on Paul Simon’s 1986 album Graceland, will be at Wingate University’s George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center. Ladysmith’s latest release is last year’s children’s collection, Songs from a Zulu Farm.

The George A. Batte, Jr. Fine Arts Center is located at 403 N. Camden Rd., Wingate, NC, 28174. For more info, call (704) 233-8300. Tickets are $25, and you can purchase them online here.
