Mambazo

Ladysmith Black Mambazo singing an a cappella version of "Put Down the Duckie."

Ladysmith Black Mambazo is an a cappella group from South Africa. The musical group became well-known in the USA after working with Paul Simon on his 1986 album Graceland.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo has recorded many songs for Sesame Street over the years, including vocals for the Anything Muppet tribesmen in "African Alphabet". They also performed the song as themselves, joined by Paul Simon.

The group can also be seen in Sesame Street Jam: A Musical Celebration and in the celebrity version of "Put Down the Duckie".

They also made an appearance in The Ghost of Faffner Hall, and sung at Richard Hunt's memorial service.

They were spoofed with the worm band, Wormsmith Black Mambazo in episode 3448 of Sesame Street, when they performed "African Alphabet" at the Worm World Music Festival.
