Released:
Label: Warner Bros.
Released a year after Graceland made world music a pop phenomenon, Shaka Zulu was a conscious attempt at building upon the international exposure the South African group's collaboration with Paul Simon had afforded them. With the diminutive singer-songwriter in the producer's chair, Ladysmith Black Mambazo's a cappella workouts are given a warm, if overly polished, treatment. However, the smooth production allows listeners to fully appreciate all the intricate nooks and crannies unique to Ladysmith's inspirational vocal art.
