Tunes on Tuesday ~ Ladysmith Black Mambazo

Zulus to the Southwest ~ thousands of ’em

In all the turbulent history of the Natal in Southern Africa, one thing stands out, the respect the British have for the wider Zulu nation.  I think this is a fabulous track.  Tremendous bass baritones.

The town of Ladysmith on the Klip River in Natal also has a special place in British history.

The Ladysmith Black Mambazo featured prominently on the Paul Simon Album ‘Graceland’.

Please listen with respect.
