Ladysmith Black Mambazo Presents Inanda Dam World Music Festival

In celebration of the summer holiday with promise of long lazy days, the Ladysmith Black Mambazo academy presents the first Inanda Dam World Music Festival featuring the stella line up of Ladysmith Black Mambazo; Lira; Oliver Mtukudzi; The Muffinz; The Legacy Mbuso Khoza; Steve Kekana; Shabalala Rythms, and Joe Nina to take place at Inanda Dam on Sunday 9 December 2018.


“Our intention is for this event to happen annually and become one of Durban’s and KZN’s signature festive season events. The idea is to feature some of Africa’s greatest music icons who have made it big globally as well as promoting African culture through music and other arts forms,” explains festival organiser Xolani Majozi.

Five times Grammy award winners –  Ladysmith Black Mambazo is one of the most globally iconic isicathamiya groups.  The legendary cothoza group has started a programme called Ladysmith Black Mambazo Mobile Academy – which is aimed at inspiring and upskilling young  isicathamiya musicians and also discovering talent  in acappella and indigenous music. They have been running workshops and masterclasses in various provinces to unearth new talent which will be showcased in this event.

“This will be a family-friendly fun event where music lovers can start their festive season with a relaxing day of great music. The event is also aiming at attracting people from all walks of life and from across the entire continent of Africa,” continues Majozi.

The event will happen during the day starting at 10am till 8pm. There will also be pop-up music stands on site where people will be encouraged to buy music of participating artists – to encourage people to buy authorised music, as Christmas gifts and event souvenirs. The festival will also encourage festival-goers to support local music and use it as a way of embracing other African cultures and heritage.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo will also use this event as a way of paying tribute to Nelson Mandela as we celebrate his centenary this year. Mandela was a great fan of Ladysmith Black Mambazo – highlighting that their music is a mobile academy of South African music and culture.

Inanda Dam festival tickets are now available at Computicket for  R200 per person. Children under the age of three will enter on free admission.

The public is advised to bring picnic baskets (no glass bottles allowed) and blankets, fold up chairs and sunhats. There will also be refreshments for sale.

The organisers wish to thank Ukhozi FM; Umsinsi Game Reserve and  Resort; National Department of Arts and Culture;  Durban Tourism; CMH Group; Ford, SABC 2, and Isolezwe .
