Ladysmith SNACK Mambazo on Jimmy Fallon

Jimmy Fallon’s Ladysmith Snack Mambazo vs. Ladysmith Black Mambazo
This video has been making its rounds, but in case you missed it - Jimmy Fallon and his house band, The Roots, collaborated recently under the alias Ladysmith Snack Mambazo for the song 'Pringles'. Obviously the name Ladysmith Snack Mambazo is a spin-off of South Africa's gospel group, Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Not only did Jimmy Fallon and The Roots mimic the name of one of South Africa's most famed music groups, but they also imitated their dancing, traditional dashikis and their acapella rhythm. While OkayAfrica didn't appreciate the imitation, I quite enjoyed the cleverness of the skit.
