Vusi! And More!

The sounds of Africa graced Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall last week as Ladysmith Black Mambazo and Vusi Mahlasela came to town to teach the kilted ones a bit of rhythm and harmony. Alien Wally and Mags are big Vusi fans, and fully admit that it was just terrible that they didn’t know much of Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s music prior to the show. But Mr Shabalala and his group can now claim Alien Wally and Mags amongst their fanbase. We’re sure they’re honoured to have such esteemed fans….

But not as honoured as said esteemed fans who got to act all fan-like when some of the guys and Vusi came out after the show to meet the audience and sign CDs. Alien Wally dug deep into the recesses of his brain, found the file marked “Old School Subjects”, and was thus able to employ his Sotho skills to have a wee chat with Vusi, while Mags resorted to shaking his hand, looking pretty and hoping that Alien Wally wasn’t bartering her away in exchange for more CDs.
