Additional Information

Johnny Clegg is a singer, songwriter, dancer, anthropologist and musical activist whose work has exploded onto the international music scene, breaking barriers in his homeland, South Africa. Clegg and Sipho Mchunu formed mixed-race Juluka in the late 1970’s. They 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 album sold 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 rebooted Juluka, recording Ya Vuka Inkunzi (also released as Crocodile Love). Since then, Clegg has recorded several solo projects including One Life (2007), New Survivor (2002) and A South African Story (2003). In 2010, Human, his first North American release in 17 years, Clegg celebrated his 30-years as a performer. Clegg and company performed 45 shows in 67 days across North America in 2014, supporting his 2nd release on Appleseed Records, Best, Live & Unplugged at the Baxter Theatre.

The Johnny Clegg Band tours India and Australia in 2015, returning to North America Spring 2016, to headline a tour of Performing Arts Centers, clubs, and universities.
