“If you try to solve a problem by a problem, it will never be solved,” says Albert Mazibuko, who has been a full-time member of Ladysmith Black Mambazo since 1973.

The ever-evolving vocal group is a South African institution - but their songs of peace, love and understanding have also left a vast footprint in American music history.

Their traditional singing style, known as isicathamiya (is-cot-a-ME-Ya), was developed in the mines of South Africa and rose to prominence in America through Paul Simon’s Graceland and the Lion King soundtrack.

If you know anything about Ex Fabula, you know that every Story Slam we make room for first-time storytellers (or Newbies).


A bluesy, classic-rock sound is rolling out of the Midwest. With a sound that could fit into categories with bands like The White Stripes, The Black Keys and The Rolling Stones, Milwaukee-based band, The Delta Routine, is definitely on to something. With a style that borrows from so many genres and bands, the group makes sure that they can’t be put under any one category exclusively. Their sound is fresh, rough, charging, infectious and incredibly unique.

Well folks, this Sunday is a sad one for Wisconsin football fans. As we put our cheese heads away for another year, many wonder what they will do without Sundays to look forward to.

Miles Nielsen stopped by WUWM@Nite to chat with Bruce Winter about his genreless sound and being the son of Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen.

“It seemed like a pretty fun job to have,” says Nielsen, who spent much of his youth traveling alongside his father. “I thought, ‘How fun is that?’ You get to go with your best friends and travel around the county playing music.”

Milwaukee comedian Ryan Lowe jokes that he is the “Jackson Pollack of comedy;” a misunderstood, reclusive, and enigmatic artistic force.  Since starting his career eight years ago, Lowe has dabbled in many different areas of comedy including sketch performance, traditional standup, and puppetry. A comedy club regular in Milwaukee and throughout the Midwest, Lowe is best known for his sarcastic and dry sense of humor. Energetic performances offset with moments of expressionless emotion have become a signatures of Lowe’s.
