introduced them to me. they appeared with him recently when he received the first gershwin prize for popular music presented by the library of congress. I saw a replay of that honor on PBS last new years eve; it was the best show, for the most part, on that night. they got us all to dance. the focus though was on simon.
I have seen "Ladysmith Black Mambazo" only on tv. I envy that you saw them live.
simon says: "Of his many concert appearances, he is most fond of the two concerts in Central Park in New York..... and the series of shows he did at the invitation of Nelson Mandela in South Africa: the first American artist to perform in post-apartheid South Africa."
I haven't been to a concert in well over 30 yrs. the best 'big names' that were exceptional in no particular order: the who, stones, billy joel, springsteen, moody blues and original genesis with peter gabriel
I just got back from a "Ladysmith Black Mambazo" performance - incredible, gorgeous, rich African vocals that reach out and warmly embrace your heart. I loved it for that and also that I've enjoyed African vocals whenever I can hear it, but this is the first time I've been to a live concert! It'll definitely go down in my "I am soo glad I did that for my life story :)".
Anyway, I just had to say that. Anyone else here have a favorite, moving concert experience?
