A cultural explosion of music, song and dance

The phenomenal fusion between four time Grammy Award-winning South African choral legends, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and multi-award winning choreographer Mark Baldwin arrives in Milton Keynes this coming week.

INALA, meaning ‘abundance of goodwill’ in Zulu, delivers a spiritually uplifting live performance, powered by a cultural explosion of music, song and dance.

The score is composed by Ladysmith Black Mambazo (who famously found international fame for their collaboration with Paul Simon on the 1986 album Graceland), Joseph Shabala and British composer Ella Spira.

She said: “The group had never annotated its music before, so writing the score for INALA was in itself a challenge, but the passion and culture of Ladysmith soars through and brings the narrative of the ballet to life.”

Prepare for a very special Monday evening indeed.

Also visiting MK Theatre this week, Milton Jones who arrives tomorrow night with his show, Temple of Daft.

Ridiculous gags, those trademark multi-coloured shirts and silly sound effects will be plentiful, unlike tickets which are thinner on the ground than tenners at a thrifty convention.

Recently diagnosed with a terminal illness, Colin Fry, ‘the people’s medium’will fulfil his commitment at the venue on Wednesday evening.
