Episode 148 features the music and an interview recorded at Womad in 2016 with the Ladysmith Black Mambazo choir leader, Albert Mazibuko, who has been a member of this remarkable choir since 1969. Albert talks about how his cousin, Joseph Shabalala founded the choir in 1960, the problems the choir encountered whilst touring South Africa during the apartheid era, recording in London with Paul Simon and the long road to success that has seen them win international acclaim, Grammy awards, and being proclaimed "South Africa's cultural ambassadors".
