The Deal

Ladysmith Black Mambazo

In 1964, South African Joseph Shabalala began to dream about a choir singing in perfect harmony. The dreams lasted for six months, and in that time influenced his waking life. He formed a group—some family members, some young musicians—and taught them the harmonies he dreamed of, creating a signature sound that he called Nomathemba, meaning hope. Those ethereal a cappella harmonies have enchanted audiences for decades since, earning three Grammy Awards and catching the ear of fellow South African Nelson Mandela. Shortly after Mandela was freed from prison, he declared that the members of Ladysmith Black Mambazo were "South Africa's cultural ambassadors," and demonstrated his fandom by having them sing at his presidential inauguration. But what gave Ladysmith Black Mambazo its world-wide audience was the group's collaboration on Paul Simon’s Graceland, where the collective of basses, tenors, altos, contraltos, and human kazoos wooed audiences with their tight harmonies. Today, fresh off their latest Grammy-nominated album, Songs from a Zulu Farm, Ladysmith Black Mambazo gets toes tapping and hands clapping with their call-and-response isicathamiya singing style.

State Theatre

The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.
