Ladysmith Black Mambazo: On Tip Toe

2000 NR

The inspiring story of South African musical group Ladysmith Black Mambazo is told in this Academy Award-nominated documentary. Led by Joseph Shabalala, the group combines traditional Zulu harmonies with delicate, syncopated foot stomping (called isicathamiya) and Western musical undertones to achieve their unique, melodic sound. Features concert footage (including a sold-out Royal Albert Hall concert) and interviews with Paul Simon.
