O’s Notes: They celebrate 20 years of harmonized vocals with this new release which includes many of their best songs. Ladysmith is an institution that won’t die! In fact they continue to broaden their reach here singing with Zap Mama, Joe McBride, Taj Mahal, Emmylou Harris and other pop stars. “Mbube”, “How Long” and “Amazing Grace” are a few of many good selections. Both the words and the harmonies are intriguing giving us a capella at it’s best and resulting in a truly enriching listening experience.
