Celebrating 20 years of democracy in South Africa, Inala brought together legendary choral group LADYSMITH BLACK MAMBAZO and award-winning choreographer Mark Baldwin and world class dancers including talent from the Royal Ballet.

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.
