Every Saturday night (into the early hours of Sunday), you will find these groups in community halls throughout the townships: Isicathamiya Zulu male choirs competing. The title of this dance and musical style is a Zulu word that means "to walk or step on ones toes lightly." These choirs are immaculately dressed in suits and white gloves, and they dance and sing in unison and harmony. Ladysmith Black Mambazo is the most recorded group of this style of entertainment. (Hear them on Paul Simon's "Graceland" album). Check local listings for various locations.
