On tip toe
Grammy-award-winning musical group Ladysmith Black Mambazo brings its vocal harmonies to downtown Reno as part of the Food for the Soul World Music concert series. The South African a cappella ensemble have been performing together since the 1960s, but it was their contributions to Paul Simon’s 1986 album, Graceland, that introduced them to a world-wide audience. They sing traditional South African music called isicathamiya—a Zulu word meaning “to tiptoe” which refers to the dance steps that accompanies the singing. The band, which was founded by Joseph Shabalala in Ladysmith, South Africa, is touring in support of its latest album, No Boundaries. The group performs 6:30 p.m. July 13 at Wingfield Park, First Street and Arlington Avenue. Admission is $5 or five cans of non-perishable food. Call 331-3663.
