Performer Notes
  • Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Joseph Shabalala, Jockey Shabalala, Msizi Innocent Shabalala, Thulani Shabalala, Sibongiseni Lucas Shabalala, Thamsanqua Shabalala, Albert Mazibuko, Abednego Mazibuko, Russel Mthembu, Jabulane Dubazana (vocals).
  • Additional personnel: Ralf Goth?ni (piano); English Chamber Orchestra.
  • Along with the Chieftains and Kronos Quartet, the South African vocal group Ladysmith Black Mambazo renders borders between geographical locations and musical forms virtually irrelevant. The group has lent their distinctive harmonies to recordings with everyone from Paul Simon to Dolly Parton, and NO BOUNDARIES finds them collaborating with the English Chamber Orchestra (conducted by Ralf Gothoni), expanding and enriching their range even further. The orchestrations are judiciously arranged, never overwhelming Ladysmith's precise, heartfelt harmonies. The orchestra often acts as an extension of LBM, almost like another member of the chorus, embellishing the melodies.
  • In addition to American gospel songs, this collective interprets works from the Western European classical tradition, including a gently rousing take on Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" and Schubert's "Sanctus (Heilig, Heilig, Heilig)." On the latter track, the vocalists of Ladysmith are joined by tenor soloist Robert Brooks for a sublime interlacing of Zulu and classical traditions (with little touches of baroque and plainsong). NO BOUNDARIES is a classy-yet-unpretentious selection of beautiful songs performed by people who know that musical and cultural common ground can be found almost anywhere.

Professional Reviews
Dirty Linen (p.66) - "The orchestral take on Paul Simon's 'Homeless' is fantastic, and now there is another version of 'Amazing Grace' to make the spine tingle."
