Helen A living Tradition Ladysmith Black Mambazo (12) RE: A living Tradition Ladysmith Black Mombz 16 May 21


Thanks for this thread and the Wimoweh - Miriam Makeba thread.

I have a brilliant 3 CD set called Africa Never Stand Still which I bought in the '90's. I love it. There is so much amazing music and musicians on it. Ladysmith Black Mombazo is on it, but not Miriam M. I also have a CD by Ladysmith BM but Everlasting Arms is not one of the tracks.

I recently bought 3 CD's by Dawda Jobarteh who plays the kora - a harp-like instrument - with a lot of traditional sounding tracks but also some fusion tracks.

I have CD's by Angélique Kidjo, and Kanda Bongo Man, and one called Morocco, Crossroads in Time, and then there are all of my CD's by African heritage people including Louis Armstrong, Billie Holliday, Fats Waller, Ella Fitzgerald and..and... the list is long. I also love Arabic music.

I think I was born on the wrong continent, but I have some CD's by amazing Australian indigenous artists like Archie Roach, Ruby Hunter, Yothu Yindi - the list goes on for those artists too.
