Last year, K and I bought a Tivoli Audio Networks Global Audio System, an internet radio system that allows us to receive thousands of radio stations from around the world. As our default, our Tivoli is tuned into Classical 96.3FM (based in Toronto / Cobourg). We love it, and I genuinely believe it has increased our quality of life.
A moment ago, 96.3FM was playing Ladysmith Black Mambazo, a group that I used to listen to a lot years ago. LBM was formed in 1960s, but rose to prominence in the mid-1980’s after being “discovered” by Paul Simon and collaborating with him. Hearing them after so long prompted to post immediately. Listen to their beautiful harmonies for yourself – I promise you will love them:
One of their most well-known songs, Homeless:
With Paul Simon:
And African-American spiritual, Swing Low, Sweet Chariot:
