New album in the works from one of South Africa's most celebrated sons, Johnny Clegg!
Johnny Clegg is a singer, songwriter, dancer, anthropologist and musical activist whose music has exploded onto the international music scene and broke through barriers in his home of South Africa. Clegg and Sipho Mchunu formed mixed-race Juluka in the late 70's and went on to record two platinum and five gold albums. In 1986 he formed Savuka and by the end of 1989 the band's debut album had sold over 1 million copies, their second reaching 700,000. Savuka received a Grammy nomination for the Best World Music Album in 1993 but disbanded shortly thereafter.
Three years later Clegg and Mchunu temporarily re-found Juluka and recorded Ya Vuka Inkunzi (also released as Crocodile Love). Since then, Clegg has recorded several solo projects including his last album One Life (2007), New Survivor (2002) and A South African Story (2003). The Johnny Clegg Band just completed a 32-city North American Tour. It was a celebration of his 30-year anniversary as a performer and Human (2011), his first release in North America in 17 years.
The Johnny Clegg Band returns to North American for 2013 Summer Festival packages with Ladysmith Black Mambazo; and again in Spring 2014 for a headline tour of PACs, clubs, and universities.
