- Thulani Shabalala
Ladysmith Black Mambazo member
member name=Thulani Shabalala
Thulani was born in
Ladysmith(eMnambithi district) to Joseph and his late wife Nellie. In 1976, Joseph brought together his six sons to form Mshengu White Mambazo, Ladysmith's 'junior choir', in which Thulani sung as one of the bass voices.
After the murder of his uncle
Headman Shabalalain December 1991 and the retirement of several other members ( Inos Phungula, Geophrey Mdletsheand Ben Shabalala), Joseph later recruited Thulani and his brothers Sibongiseni, Thamsanqa and Msizi. Thulani has been a part of the line-up since 1993 and is one of 4 basses (the others being Russel Mthembu, Abednego Mazibukoand Sibongiseni Shabalala).
In 2007, Thulani (in tribute to his father and Ladysmith Black Mambazo) released a solo album, "
Asibuye Emasisweni". The album marked the beginning of another musical act to emerge from the Shabalala family, and although Thulani is now making his name known in South Africa, he continues to be a part of Black Mambazo.
