  • Hommage à Joseph Shabalala - 1941 - 2020

    30:20

    Leader emblématique du Ladysmith Black Mambazo dont il est le fondateur en 1960, Joseph Shabalala a tiré sa révérence mardi à Pretoria à l’âge de 78 ans; mais coïncidence ou simple hasard, ce 11 février marquait aussi le trentième anniversaire de la libération de Nelson Mandela, un féru de musique qu’il a réussi aussi à faire chanter et danser sur scène .
    Né en 1941 dans la ville de Ladysmith, Joseph Shabalala avait officiellement pris sa retraite en 2014 à cause de sa santé qui devenait de plus en plus fragile. Mais pendant presque soixante ans, il œuvra pour le rayonnement de l’« Isicathamiya » (son traditionnel zoulou) à l’échelle internationale.
    En 1986, il participe avec son fameux groupe vocal à l’enregistrement de Graceland, album de Paul Simon qui lui vaut la reconnaissance mondiale. Depuis lors, Shabalala collabore avec de réputés musiciens de Salif Keita à George Clinton en passant par Dolly Parton, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder, Taj Mahal, Andreas Vollenweider, Des’Ree et bien d’autres.
    Aujourd’hui, la nation Arc-en-ciel est orpheline de celui qui lui a rapporté 5 Grammy Awads et signé des œuvres intemporelles. Joseph Shabalala est aussi celui qui raconte souvent qu’un de ses rêves, en 1964, lui dicta de mettre sur pied la formation du Ladysmith Black Mambazo et de porter toujours des tenues traditionnelles.

    RIP maestro !

    SKIPPER SHABALALA RELEASES HIS LONG AWAITED SOLO ALBUM
    Industry veteran and stalwart of the South African music scene, Skipper Shabalala has over 20 years experience as a professional musician who has spanned various genres of music. In 1986, he formed the popular group Zasha which produced the hit track Bricka Bhova and performed as the backing group for top acts like Kamazu, Ali Kat, Chicco and Rebecca Malope.
    After nine years with the band Skipper joined the late reggae master Lucky Dube's band in 1995 as the lead guitarist and featured on numerous albums such as Taxman, The way it is', Soultaker and Respect'. A natural on the stage, through his discipline and hard working reputation, Skipper assumed the role of the band leader and toured the world with Lucky Dube sharing the stage with musical giants like Michael Jackson, Burning Spear, UB40, Peter Gabriel, Shaggy and Ziggy Marley. He has also worked with talents such as Mr Caiphu, Mama Leta Mbulu, Siphokazi and Eddy Grant.
    In 2000, together with the three other talented musicians, Skipper formed an Afro traditional group Khumbula with Skipper as lead guitarist, lead vocalist and band leader. Khumbula burst onto the South African music scene with their debut album Bayakhuluma and immediately established themselves as major players on the local airwaves. To prove they were no one-album-wonder, they followed this up a year later with their powerful second albulm Kheta (Choose). The multi-talented musician's popular Afro-beat style is a unique combination of traditional Maskanda guitar rhythms in conjunction with astounding vocal interplay, all with an exotic, delicate North African ingredient. The music shows deep respect to the traditions that
    Skipper grew up with, while their vocal arrangements and other eclectic touches keep the music fresh and relevant to the new generation of fans of contemporary local music.
    Now, Skipper's releases his very first long awaited solo album, Bekezela (Persevere). He explains, The fusion of different music elements with my Zulu traditional way of singing resulting in a fresh sound. Each song brings its own meaning to the album.
    The album combines top- notch song writing melded with a unique but smooth and highly listenable style of African music. Anyone into contemporary music, traditional fusion/jazz, Afro - fusion and of course Maskandi music will just have to add this sublime album to their collection.

  • Joseph Shabalala, fondateur de Ladysmith Black Mambazo, est décédé

    5:39

    Le fondateur du groupe vocal sud-africain Ladysmith Black Mambazo, révélé par sa participation à l’album “Graceland” de Paul Simon en 1986, est décédé le 11 février 2020. Il avait 78 ans.

    « Joseph Shabalala a réuni Ladysmith Black Mambazo et a diffusé sa musique dans le monde entier. Imaginez ! Quel accomplissement pour un garçon issu de l’Afrique du Sud sous l’Apartheid. Je l’admirais pour sa musique et sa piété. Les gens aiment Mambazo. J’aime Joseph. On a passé un super moment. » C’est par ce tweet que Paul Simon a salué la mémoire de Joseph Shabalala, au lendemain de sa mort à 78 ans, le 11 février, dans un hôpital de Pretoria. L’Américain avait propulsé la notoriété internationale du chanteur sud-africain en invitant son groupe vocal, Ladysmith Black Mambazo, sur son album Graceland, en 1986. Un album triomphal mais polémique, Paul Simon étant alors accusé d’avoir rompu, en enregistrant à Johannesburg, le boycott culturel imposé au pays ségrégationniste ; un disque pionnier du concept de world music, sur lequel le tube Homeless est cosigné par Joseph Shabalala dont le chœur magnifie aussi Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes.

    Apparition en rêve

    Enfant de Ladysmith, dans la province du KwaZulu-Natal, Joseph Shabalala rêvait de devenir enseignant ou médecin avant que la mort de son père lui impose, à 12 ans, de travailler dans la ferme de propriétaires blancs, puis dans une usine de Durban. Le chant était un passe-temps jusqu’à ce qu’il fonde diverses chorales masculines, avec plusieurs frères et cousins, dès la fin des années 1950, pour interpréter des chants zoulous (un genre baptisé isicathamiya) ou des gospels, selon le principe du « call-and-response » et d’harmonies fortement contrastées, en descendant profond dans les basses. Shabalala a souvent raconté qu’un rêve, en 1964, lui dicta de créer Ladysmith Black Mambazo (la hache noire de Ladysmith) et d’adopter des tenues traditionnelles. Le groupe a remporté des compétitions locales qui lui permirent d’être diffusé sur une radio de Johannesburg, puis signé sur un label national. LBM a fini par sortir des dizaines d’albums plébiscités, dans son pays, par un public aussi bien noir que blanc. Mais sa notoriété internationale se résumait à des apparitions dans un festival allemand, dans la compilation The Indestructible Beat of Soweto et dans le film documentaire de Jeremy Marre, Rhythm of Resistance, où Paul Simon fit sa découverte.


    Message divin

    Dans le livret de la réédition de Graceland en 2016, Joseph Shabalala raconte sa rencontre avec Paul Simon : « Il est venu vers moi comme un enfant demandant à son père, “Peux-tu m’enseigner quelque chose ?” Il était si poli. C’est la première fois que j’ai serré dans mes bras un homme blanc. » Simon, qui embarqua Ladysmith Black Mambazo dans sa tournée Graceland, a aussi produit le premier album international du groupe, Shaka Zulu, récompensé par le premier de ses cinq Grammy Awards. D’autres ont suivi tandis que le chœur élargissait son répertoire aux standards de la soul, avec une puissance vocale peu commune, tout en collaborant avec Stevie Wonder, Taj Mahal, George Clinton ou Dolly Parton (pour une magnifique version de Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door de Dylan) – un corpus réuni sur le best of The Star and the Wiseman (1998). Mais la réalité sud-africaine rattrapa aussi Joseph Shabalala, quand l’un de ses frères (membre du groupe) fut abattu par un policier blanc en 1991, ou quand son épouse fut assassinée par un homme masqué en 2002. Après le premier de ces drames, dont il reçut la nouvelle alors qu’il se trouvait à l’église, le chanteur pensa (il l’a raconté dans une interview à la radio NPR) qu’il s’agissait d’un message divin : « Dieu me disait d’arrêter de chanter. C’était sa manière de me parler. Mais après deux ou trois jours, peut-être une semaine, l’esprit est revenu à moi dans la nuit et il m’a dit : “C’est ton talent. Continue de chanter.” »
