LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO
WUWF Public Media Presents, Ladysmith Black Mambazo in Concert Friday, March 21, 7:30pm at the Mattie Kelly Arts Center at Northwest Florida State College in Niceville, FL. Tickets are available through the Mattie Kelly Arts Center box office, phone 850-729-6000 online at mattiekellyartscenter.org
Assembled in the early 1960's in South Africa by Shabalala, then a young farmboy-turned-factory-worker, the group took the name Ladysmith Black Mambazo from the name of Shabalala's rural hometown of Ladysmith. The group borrows heavily from a traditional music called isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-Ya), which developed in the mines of South Africa, where black workers were taken by rail to work far away from their homes and their families.
Poorly housed and paid worse, the mine workers would entertain themselves after a six-day week by singing songs into the wee hours on Sunday morning. When the miners returned to the homelands, this musical tradition returned with them. Ladysmith Black Mambazo's ambitious discography currently includes more than 50 recordings.
Their philosophy in the studio has always been as much about preservation of musical heritage as it is about entertainment. In the mid-1980s, Paul Simon visited South Africa and incorporated Black Mambazo's rich tenor/alto/bass harmonies into his Graceland album - a landmark 1986 recording that was considered seminal in introducing world music to mainstream audiences. A year later, Simon produced Black Mambazo's first U.S. release, Shaka Zulu, which won a Grammy Award in 1988.

CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: VAREKAI
Cirque du Soleil is pleased to announce that its newest arena show, Varekai, will perform in Pensacola at the Pensacola Bay Center from March 19 - 23 for seven performances only. After 11 years of touring the world under the blue and yellow Big Top, Varekai will begin a new adventure touring the world in arenas worldwide and in some markets never visited before!
Deep within a forest, at the summit of a volcano, exists an extraordinary world a world where something else is possible. A world called Varekai. The sky lets go a solitary young man, and the story of Varekai begins. Parachuted into the shadows of a magical forest, a kaleidoscopic world imbued with fantastical creatures, a young man takes flight in an adventure both absurd and extraordinary. On this day at the edge of time, in this place of pure and undiluted possibility, begins an inspired incantation to a life rediscovered and to a newly found wonder in the mysteries of the world and the mind.
The word Varekai (pronounced veraykie) means wherever in the Romany language of the gypsies, the universal wanderers. Directed by Dominic Champagne, this production pays tribute to the nomadic soul, to the spirit and art of the circus tradition, and to those who quest with infinite passion along the path that leads to Varekai.
Tickets for the general public are available at www.cirquedusoleil.com/varekai, Pensacola Bay Center Box Office & Ticketmaster Outlets.
