Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Ladysmith Black Mambazo & Friends

Ladysmith Black Mambazo and FriendsThis South African group is most famous for backing Paul Simon on his 1986 Graceland album. But the male singers, led by Joseph Shabalala, have also won three Grammys and shared their sunny acapella sound with other artists, as featured on this impressive collection. Along with Graceland favorites with Paul, plus Sarah McLachlan’s angelic take on “Homeless,” this 2-CD set includes Josh Groban’s stirring protest song “Weeping” and Dolly Parton’s joyous, reggae-fied “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door.”
