The group was formed in the 1960s by Joseph Shabalala when he recruited members of his family to sing isicathamiya, Zulu male choral music sung by mine workers in South Africa. Their first recording contract in 1970 has been followed by dozens of recordings. Paul Simon's "Graceland" album featuring the group brought them worldwide attention. They have since been nominated for numerous awards for both their music and the documentary film "On Tip Toe: Gentle Steps to Freedom" which tells their story.
