The famed South African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo led by Joseph Shabalala creates moments of transformative beauty with their unique sound and vivid imagery. Choirs will enjoy recreating the evocative classic "Rain, Rain, Beautiful Rain". "Amavolovolo" is a popular Zulu traditional song as arranged by Rudolf de Beer, former conductor of the Drakensbeg Boys Choir of South Africa. What a vivid connection to the people and culture of that part of the world! Authentic percussion and movement suggestions give this selection great visual appeal. The Zulu dowry song "Imaliyam" will be a challenging and impressive concert feature. An excellent choice for better high school choirs and up.
