It felt so completely right that the last performance I attended at the fest was Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Although I have loved them dearly for 30 years, I have never seen them live. Also, I have been going to the festival for that long and this was the first time they performed there.
It was a totally moving, nostalgic, awesome, heart swelling hour and ten minutes. Best music, dancing, love, talent, sounds, childhood, growing old Tshabalalas, young Tshabalalas, well known songs, new songs, old moves, new moves, a thrilled and ululating audience, tears, ovations, and good vibes all round. Way to go.
