    Lyrics:
    (A-wa a-wa) o kodwa u zo-nge li-sa namhlange
    (A-wa a-wa) si-bona kwenze ka kanjani
    (A-wa a-wa) amanto mbazane ayeza
    She's a rich girl
    She don't try to hide it
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    He's a poor boy
    Empty as a pocket
    Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose
    Sing ta na na
    Ta na na na
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Ta na na
    Ta na na na
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    People say she's crazy
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Well that's one way to lose these
    Walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of your shoes

    She was physically forgotten
    And then she slipped into my pocket
    With my car keys
    She said you've taken me for granted
    Because I please you
    Wearing these diamonds
    And I could say oo oo oo
    As if everybody knows
    What I'm talking about
    As if everybody here would know
    Exactly what I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    She makes the sign of a teaspoon
    He makes the sign of a wave
    The poor boy changes clothes
    And he puts on after-shave
    To compensate for his ordinary shoes

    And she said honey take me dancing
    But they ended up by sleeping
    In a doorway
    By the bodegas and the lights on
    Upper Broadway
    Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes

    And I could say oo oo oo
    And everybody here would know
    What I was talking about
    I mean everybody here would know exactly
    What I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds

    People say I'm crazy
    I got diamonds on the soles of my shoes
    Well that's one way to lose
    These walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of my shoes

    Ta na na
    Ta na na na

  • KCRW Presents: Ladysmith Black Mambazo at CAP UCLA

    1:33:31

    KCRW and CAP UCLA proudly present an exclusive concert with South African vocalists Ladysmith Black Mambazo.

    In early March, South African group Ladysmith Black Mambazo was en route to the U.S. to resume their tour, which had already been rescheduled due to the death of their founder, Joseph Shabalala. Then the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak forced them to cancel many performance dates. Except one: Ladysmith Black Mambazo chose to perform an entire concert at the University of California, Los Angeles. On stage before an empty Royce Hall, the group performed to an audience populated with three camera operators, a few staff and a modest crew.

    Now, KCRW — in partnership with the Center for the Art of performance at UCLA — debut that intimate concert for the first time, bringing the joyful music of South Africa to the world.

  • Ladysmith Black Mambazo - King Of Kings

    7:02

    Ladysmith Black Mambazo are the most famous and successful Zulu vocal group of all time. Founded and led by Joseph Shabalala in 1974, they quickly became hugely popular in their native South Africa but it was their collaboration with Paul Simon on his classic Graceland album in the mid-eighties that brought them to a worldwide audience.

    The group's stunning vocal harmonies combining a number of bass voices with a single tenor and alto and with Shabalala singing lead are instantly recognisable and extraordinarily powerful and their live shows are also a showcase for athletic Zulu dancing.

    Ladysmith Black Mambazo have played Montreux on three occasions and this DVD is a combination from all three performances. It features classic tracks such as Hello My Baby, King Of Kings and the song co-written with Paul Simon, Homeless, which has become their signature tune.

    As a bonus feature, these duplicate performances from other years are also included:
    1) Homeless 2) Nomathemba 3) Hello My Baby 4) Homeless
