IMBIZO is an all-male group performing a cappella, mostly in its own material. This means that out in the wider world, wherever it goes, Ladysmith Black Mambazo has already been, but happily the sound and the music are distinctive, with soft timbres and a strong pull to the bass end of the sound spectrum, consistently cohesive and polished as the group works choral textures and vocal effects into long spans of evolving repetitions.
