Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Offstage Activities

Oscar Mokeme, Founding Director of the Museum of African Culture, discusses how Ladysmith Black Mambazo—with great love and compassion—has used its songs as prayers to bridge the barriers of hate, ethnic divisiveness and other challenges in South Africa and around the world. He also explores the essence and significance of traditional chants and Christian songs in our vernacular, as well as how blending the traditional dance step of the motherland is adding to the richness of the dance movement of the 21st century world beat.
