Afropop Worldwide

Read more
Johnny Clegg holds a unique place in South Africa’s musical pantheon. From his childhood immersion in Zulu culture, his mastery of Zulu language, dance and guitar playing, some 20 albums with three different bands, his tireless world touring and, finally, his brave public battle with cancer, Clegg was an inspired witness to tumultuous history in South Africa and around the world. Afropop was fortunate to conduct many interviews with the maestro and raconteur over 30 years. In this program, we sample the man’s words and music over a long shape-shifting career. Produced by Banning Eyre.

JOHNNY CLEGG - TRAIN OF THOUGHT

Rob Tobias: TRAIN OF THOUGHT
Episode artwork
Read more
Rob Tobias pays tribute to South African Musician Johnny Clegg who passed away recently at the age of 66. He formed two bands, Juluka and Savuka and also performed under his own name. Lyrics to his songs were often bilingual in English and Zulu and his bands wrote several politically charged songs, particularly related to apartheid. He embodied the fighting spirit and vision required to transcend into a better future for all. Leading from the front, he has shown how social barriers and prejudices can be broken with his music and in doing so, has instilled an awareness of other cultures while truly creating a meaningful change.

Hear how his jazz singer mother and stepfather who left when he was 14 impacted him, as well as how he's been touring since 1983. And hear Johnny detail one of his all-time favourite moments: performing 'Asimbonanga' with Nelson Mandela on stage.
