(formerly called Ezimnyama, "The Black Ones"). A singing troupe of ten men led by Joseph Shabalala, which became world famous in the 1980-1990s when the group worked with Paul Simon on tour and on his album and video Graceland. Their music and performances did much to propagate indigenous performance forms in the country and internationally. The musical style they developed, also permeated much of the popular performance in the 1990s and later, including many stage plays and musicals.
