Ladysmith Black Mambazo Reunites with Steppenwolf for ‘Lindiwe’
By: MARC VITALI

“From a Chicago blues club to South Africa, a new show at Steppenwolf Theatre explores music and love across cultures.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo formed in the early 1960s and added its acclaimed harmonies to Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’ album in 1986. The a cappella group started its collaboration with Steppenwolf in 1992 with ‘The Song of Jacob Zulu,’ which went to Broadway. A few years later they worked together again on the show ‘Nomathemba.’

Now the group is back in town for its third show at Steppenwolf. We visited them in rehearsal and spoke with some of the creative team.”
