Ladysmith Black Mambazo: Poised to Continue Another 50 Years!

This year, Ladysmith Black Mambazo celebrates more than 50 years of making joyous music! The first time I saw them was when they performed on "Saturday Night Live" with Paul Simon many, many years ago.  I joined the World Music/CRASHarts team back in the early 1990s and have had the pleasure of seeing them live now more times than I can count.  They never fail to touch my heart and uplift my spirit.

Maure's Pick of the Week #2

Well, this is a little belated, since I posted Maure's Pick of the Week #1 more than a week ago. But alas, I am busy all the time! 

This Pick of the Week is Neil Young "Needle and the Damage Done." So deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Too young and too talented. Let us all remember him as Lestor Bangs. One of my personal favorite characters from one of my personal favorite movies of all time, Almost Famous.

Rest in peace.
