Ladysmith Black Mambazo- “Homeless (Live)”

Ladysmith Black Mambazo follows the vocal performance tradition of South Africa known as Isicathamiya. This particular style is marked by beautiful harmony in the voices and lack of instrumental accompaniment. Ladysmith Black Mambazo, in turn the genre of Isicathamiya, rose to prominence thanks to the group’s accompaniment of Paul Simon on his album “Graceland.”
