GRAMMY FOR LBM (article first published : 2005-02-15)

Multiple award winner Ladysmith Black Mambazo was announced the GRAMMY Award winner for Traditional World Music Album at the 47th annual Grammy Awards on Channel O.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo have taken the world by storm with their special brand of traditional African music. Characterised by tangible joy, harmony and celebration, their music has garnered praise and awards around the globe.

First introduced to a worldwide audience by their guest appearance on Paul Simon's Graceland album, on the track Diamonds on The Soles of Her Shoes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo's music was hailed immediately as a breakthrough in transcending geographical, cultural and racial barriers.

Their last GRAMMY Award win was in 1987 for the album Shaka Zulu but throughout their career they have been nominated nine times for GRAMMY Awards.
