Award winning Ladysmith Black Mambazo win their 5th Grammy Award!

Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Multi-Platinum selling super group, and 4 X Grammy® Award winning group win their 5th Grammy Award at the 56th Annual Grammy ceremony held in Los Angeles on 26th January 2014.

The Band wins yet again for “Best World Music Album” from "Live: Singing for Peace Around the World,"  set for release in South Africa through Gallo Record Company in early February.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo, with lead vocalist Joseph Tshabalala, became the first South African group to win a Grammy award. The group won their first award for the best traditional folk album 'Shaka Zulu' which was produced by music icon Paul Simon. Paul Simon was captivated by their music and helped the group conquer the international music scene. The group has since been nominated for six additional Grammy awards, including a nomination in 2001 for the album 'Live From Royal Albert Hall'. 

It was a befitting honor for this outstanding group that has sold over 9 million copies in South Africa and internationally. Ladysmith Black Mambazo has since collaborated with some of the biggest names in music including Dolly Parton, Vusi Mahlasela, Melissa Etheridge, Des’Ree, Hugh Masekela, Emmylou Harris, Lou Rawls, Taj Mahal, and Josh Groban to name a few.

The band continues to be one of the biggest selling catalogues within the Gallo Record Company Stable.

“We are so proud to be the custodians of Ladysmith Black Mambazo – an iconic South African music super group!  We congratulate Ladysmith Black Mambazo once again for this tremendous achievement”. Says Neil Greenberg – Content Manager - Gallo Record Company.

Their new album will hit music stores and digital partners in early February 2014, more information to be announced.
