In their lunge for the American mainstream, South African a capella group Ladysmith Black Mambazo stumbles to the point of ridicule. Even with, or perhaps because of, the talent assembled to help them cross the bridge (Paul Simon, Lou Rawls, Dolly Parton, Bonnie Raitt, etc.), they sound like a tired lounge act, re-treading songs from other eras.. Their treatment of Sam Cooke's "Chain Gang" could be a "Mad TV" spoof, and as soon as they launch into The Staple Singers' "I'll Take You There," you'll want to decline the offer. The better songs, including gospel numbers "Happy Day" and "Take My Hand, Precious Lord," get lost in the silliness.
