It was Nelson Mandela who designated Ladysmith Black Mambazo “South Africa’s Cultural Ambassadors to the world.” Ladysmith Black Mambazo returns to the USA in 2015 for their annual celebration of South African culture and history. They will sing songs of Peace, Love & Harmony to the world as they have since their very beginnings.
