Ladysmith Black Mambazo

By Stephanie Smittle

TUESDAY 1/28. UA Pulaski Technical College CHARTS (Center for the Humanities and Arts). 7:30 p.m. $10-$65.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo
$10 – $65

If the African songs you know by heart come mostly from the record “Graceland,” there are a couple of things you can do to expand the breadth of that knowledge. The first? Get hip to the locally produced BantuNauts Raydio, a program on KABF-FM, 88.3, that plays music from African countries — and from all over the world — between 10 p.m. and midnight every Saturday. The second? Go hear this concert from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the five-decade ensemble tradition whose harmonies, charisma and cultural scholarship have established them as de facto and official ambassadors of South Africa — and yes, who lent gravity, vibrancy and texture to that seminal 1986 Paul Simon album.
