The show put on for us was one that is truly unforgettable – with the first ever collaboration between these two iconic musical influences throughout the past and present of the South African music industry. the vibe was relaxed, and happy – with the crowd all dancing like nobody was watching, and everyone truly enjoying every moment – we were so very lucky to have experienced this first hand!

The founder of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Joseph Shabalala even made his appearance alongside the legend Johnny Clegg, and his sons and grandson who now form Ladysmith Black Mambazo – for a passionate and heartwarming performance.

Singing struggle anthems and songs emblazened in our hearts and minds – this was the experience of a lifetime for many.
