South Africa has had many musical ambassadors, but surely none as distinctive as Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Though their name translates as "the Black Axe of Ladysmith," this unique vocal group from the province of Natal are both gentle and persuasive in style. And their music has become one of the jewels in the crown of both country and continent. The Music Of Ladysmith Black Mambazo reflects the needs of migrant workers to make their own entertainment, hence the theatrical aspect to their shows. Already popular in their native South Africa, they were brought to a worldwide audience through their collaboration with Paul Simon on his classic "Graceland" album. The group has played Montreux on three occasions, and all performances are compiled on this DVD, including many of their best loved tracks such as "King of Kings," "Hello My Baby," and "Homeless." Founded in 1967, the Montreux Jazz Festival has established itself as one of the most prestigious annual music events in the world. The extraordinary list of artists who have played there is drawn from across the musical spectrum and from around the world. Now, with the consent of the festival and the artitists, these concerts are finally available on DVD for the first time.
