Paul Simon with Ladysmith Black Mambazo in Under African Skies, a documentary about his 1986 album, Graceland. The spine of the movie is a recent conversation between Mr. Simon and Dali Tambo, the South African co-founder of Artists Against Apartheid. Mr. Simon, without asking permission from the African National Congress, as his friend Harry Belafonte had advised, traveled to Johannesburg in 1985, when apartheid was still in effect, and recorded most of the album’s instrumental tracks in nine days. In doing so he violated the United Nations’ cultural boycott of South Africa.

Under African Skies" is a song by the American singer-songwriter Paul Simon. It was the fifth and final single from his seventh studio album, Graceland (1986), released on Warner Bros. The song features guest vocals from singer Linda Ronstadt, who received top billing on the single release. Under African Skies" originated in later recording sessions for Graceland

Paul Simon and Miriam Makeba - Under African Skies (Live from The African Concert, 1987). This is the trailer for the documentary Under African Skies. This documentary was created as a way to commemorate Paul Simon’s time in South Africa, when he collaborated with many musicians, including Ladysmith Black Mambazo. Under African Skies does the story a service by revisiting the specifics. It does the audience a bigger service by bringing Graceland back to life. I wonder when there will be a screening of this documentary in the Boston area, I’d love to go!

Nobody expected Paul Simon to release the best album of his career in 1986. Up until that point his only projects of the decade had been a disastrous movie (One Trick Pony), a cash-in oldies tour with Art Garfunkel and two poorly received studio albums (the soundtrack to One Trick Pony and 1983’s Hearts and Bones). When he headed down to Apartheid-era South Africa to record Graceland with local musicians he was called both a cultural imperialist and a political scoundrel for violating the boycott. These two albums were celebrated by Simon and guests on Saturday night, the fourth of a five night Under African Skies concert series at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. It’s the second of three-part, month-long residency at the theater called Love In Hard Times: The Music of Paul Simon.
