Ladysmith leader praises Zim music

The Grammy award-winning leader of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Joseph Shabalala, has praised isicathamiya groups in Zimbabwe. The singer, who is dubbed the king of isicathamiya music, told The Zimbabwean: “I have been touring all over the world for many years but what I saw in Zimbabwe was amazing to watch and difficult to forget.”

In Bulawayo, there are few groups who sing isicathamiya. Seeing them following Zulu culture, said Shabalala, made him realise that there was links between them and us.
