Mark Baldwin collaborates with Ladysmith Black Mambazo for INALA

Rambert Artistic Director, Mark Baldwin has collaborated with choral legends Ladysmith Black Mambazo to celebrate 20 years of democracy in South Africa.

Performing INALA’s original score by Joseph Shabalala and classical composer Ella Spira, Ladysmith Black Mambazo blend the intricate rhythms and infectious harmonies of their native musical roots with live percussion, piano and strings. Mark Baldwin’s richly visceral choreography unites Zulu traditions with classical ballet and contemporary dance, performed by an exceptional company of eighteen dancers and singers, including Mbulelo Ndabeni and Dane Hurst (Rambert).

Embracing South Africa’s past, its present and new hopes for the future, INALA delivers a spiritually uplifting and beautiful live story-telling experience, powered by a cultural explosion of music, song and dance.
