Ladysmith Black Mambaso--seven of the eight performers
Last Saturday Bob and I joined our friends Dave, Paula and Lori for a concert at the Arvada Center. We arrived early enough to get a good place on the grassy slope--slope being the key word as our calf muscles got a good workout just keeping us from scooting down the hill and taking those in front of us to the bottom. We had a great view and the sound was fantastic. We had stopped at Chipotle on the way and picked up food to enjoy. Lori brought fruit and drinks to share.
I had never seen the group in concert but I have loved their music since Paul Simon included them on his Graceland album. Their homepage lists 9 members although only eight were on stage during this concert. Their harmony is haunting yet mellow and the effect was soothing and peaceful. Great music and great friends produced a most enjoyable night.
