... AND THEY HAVE WON IT AGAIN - GRAMMY AWARD #5 on 28.01.2018 !!!
The group was awarded for Best World Music Album of 2017 for their recording SHAKA ZULU REVISITED.
Formed in the 1960's by Joseph Shabalala (retired 2014), the group is now led by Joseph's four sons, Thulani, Sibongiseni, Thamsanqa and Msizi Shabalala. On winning the GRAMMY Award, the members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo say "This is the highest honour we can receive from the music profession. It is humbling to know that this fifth GRAMMY Award, for Ladysmith Black Mambazo, is the most any World Music group has ever received. Each time we step into a recording studio we work very hard to create something true to our culture, true to our country of South Africa and to true to our message of Peace and Love. The great Nelson Mandela told us that it was our mission to use our ability to be heard all over the world as a means to spread this message of peace. We will never cease in this and we thank the GRAMMY Awards for being part of our mission. We'd like to thank our fans for their continued support in this musical journey of ours. Of course we thank the people of South Africa, who have long supported us as artistic leaders for their nation."
They are currently on a World Tour, coming to Europe in May, summer and fall.
