The South African singing collective Ladysmith Black Mambazo has the power to transform even a LifeSavers commercial into something profoundly spiritual. For more than three decades, the ensemble has crafted sweeping a cappella music that combines Zulu folk and Christian church traditions, a sound that struck a chord worldwide after Paul Simon invited the troupe to perform on his 1986 album, “Graceland.” These days, the Grammy-winning musicians are the ones soliciting guest artists — as on their 2006 collaborative LP, “Long Walk to Freedom.” Tonight at 7:30, the group takes the stage at George Washington University’s Lisner Auditorium (21st and H streets Northwest). Tickets (priced from $35 to $55) are available through www.wpas.org or by calling 202/785-9727.
