Celebrating 21 years of democracy in South Africa, INALA presents choral legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo, in an artistic collaboration with multi award winning choreographer Mark Baldwin and world class dancers including talent from the Royal Ballet and Rambert. An ambitious new production, INALA embraces an exhilarating fusion of South Africa and Western Cultures live on stage.
Four time Grammy award- winners Ladysmith Black Mambazo first rose to worldwide prominence with Paul Simon's Graceland album . INALA'S original score is composed and performed by Ladysmith Blackmambazo, lead by Joseph Shabalala and Ella Spira, blending the intricate rhythms and infectious harmonies of their native musical roots with live percussions, piano and strings. Mark Baldwin's richly visceral choreography unites Zulu traditions with classical ballet and contemporary dance, performed by an exceptional company of 18 dancers and singers.
Produced by Sisters Grimm, INALA delivers a spiritually uplifting live story- telling experience, powered by a cultural explosion of music, song and dance.
