GRAMMY-WINNING LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO TO PERFORM FEBRUARY 20 AT HOLLAND CENTER
 
A Cappella Group Sings Traditional Music From South Africa
 
 Omaha Performing Arts presents the Ladysmith Black Mambazo in the Kiewit Hall at the Holland Performing Arts Center Friday, February 20, at 8:00 p.m. Tickets start at $20, and are available at TicketOmaha.com, 402.345.0606 or at the Ticket Omaha Office inside the Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St. 
The South African a cappella vocal group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, has been performing worldwide for more than 50 years. A young farmer, Joseph Shabalala, formed the group in the early 1960s. The name comes from his hometown, Ladysmith; Black being a reference to the oxen, the strongest of all farm animals; and Mambazo, the Zulu word for chopping axe, a symbol of the group’s ability to “chop down” any singing rival who might challenge them. The group sings from a traditional music called isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-Ya), which developed in the mines of South Africa.
