Singer Paul Simon included South African musicians and influences on his Graceland album. Also released in 1986, Graceland brought Ladysmith Black Mambazo to international prominence. Two years later, continued interest and the political climate of the times helped ensure the success of the Broadway play (and later film, starring Whoopi Goldberg) Sarafina! about the 1976 Soweto uprising against apartheid. Movie can be found in DVD format.
