Clegg, well-versed in Zulu song and dance, moved with finesse and put on a naturally theatrical show. The near-capacity audience was an enthusiastic participant in the evening, rocking the room to the rhythm of the songs.
World-renowned South African singer, songwriter, activist and anthropologist Johnny Clegg broke down racial barriers and created music just as colourful as his homeland, defying apartheid by forming two high successful multi-racial bands (Juluka and Savuka) in the late 70s and 80s. Blending Western pop with the rhythms of the Zulus, Clegg, who earned the honorary nickname the White Zulu, is now saying a fond farewell on his last ever tour, entitled The Final Journey. Don't miss this chance to relive the astounding career of a true legend.
In 2015, the innovator was diagnosed with cancer, but bravely continued to tour. Now in remission, Clegg is currently working on a brand new, final album as well as an autobiography, triumphantly tying up a career spanning over four decades. With an incredible journey like his, there's no doubt that there'll be much regaling and story-telling at this very special show.
