Shaka Zulu was the storied warrior king who ruled in South Africa in the early 1800s, ushering in the Zulu empire, and ILEMBE is the sound of South Africa's most famous musical sons paying tribute to his legend. As with all of Ladysmith Black Mambazo's best work, the album finds leader Joseph Shabalala and his crooning comrades delivering complex-yet-earthy a cappella harmonies that carry both ethereal and visceral effects simultaneously. As close to the group's hearts as the album's honoree may be, even casual listeners with little knowledge of Shaka Zulu's life and deeds are bound to be entranced by Ladysmith's vocal command and undeniably engaging, proudly beating musical heart.
