The jubilant and stirring voices of “South Africa’s cultural ambassadors” (Nelson Mandela) combine the complex rhythms and harmonies of Zulu tradition with the sounds and sentiments of gospel music. The group sings a traditional musical style called isicathamiya (Is-Cot-A-Mee-Ya), which developed in South African mines where poorly paid Black workers were taken to work far away from their homes. Beautiful a cappella harmonies — made famous on Paul Simon’s Graceland album — frame this five-time Grammy Award-winning ensemble’s message of hope and peace in an unforgettable performance of powerful song.
