Johnny Clegg And Savuka

Together with Sipho Mchunu, a Zulu musician who came to Johannesburg in search of work, Johnny Clegg formed South Africa's first multiracial band, Juluka. In the seven years that they were initially together, the band recorded two platinum and five gold albums and became an international success. Following the group's disbanding in 1986, Clegg continued to blend African music with European pop influences with the band Savuka. Reunited with Mchunu in the mid-'90s, Clegg re-formed Juluka and toured throughout the world as opening act for King Sunny Ade.

A native of Lancashire, England, Clegg moved to Africa as a youngster. Although he temporarily lived in Zimbabwe and Zambia, he eventually settled in South Africa with his family. Starting guitar at the age of 14, Clegg was introduced to South African music when he heard a street musician, Mntonganazo Mzila. Enchanted by what he heard, Clegg apprenticed himself to Mzila for two years, learning the basics of Zulu music and Inhlangwini dancing. Soon after meeting Sipho Mchunu and forming Juluka, Clegg recorded his debut single, "Waza Friday." Although racial prejudice in South Africa prevented their first album, Universal Man, from attaining radio airplay, the album became a word-of-mouth hit. Their second album, African Litany, released in 1981, included the South African hit "Impi." Two years later, Juluka attracted international acclaim for their album Scatterlings.

The political climate of South Africa began to take its toll on the group in the mid-'80s. By 1985, Clegg and Mchunu separated, with Mchunu returning to his homeland to work on his farm. Clegg's second band, Savuka, which took its name from the Zulu word meaning "we have risen" or "we have awakened," took a more pop-minded approach to African music. The group's debut album, Third World Child, sold more than two million copies. Following their second album, Shadow Man, Savuka embarked on a world tour, opening shows for Steve Winwood in the United States and George Michael in Canada. Savuka reached their peak with their fourth album, 1993's Heat, Dust and Dreams, which was nominated for a Grammy in the Best World Music category and received a Billboard music award as Best World Music Album.

Clegg reunited with Mchunu in the mid-'90s to tour and record under the Juluka name, then turned to solo work in the late '90s. He returned to the studio in the new millennium to complete the 2002 solo release New World Survivor. The following year's A South African Story captured a spellbinding live show at the Nelson Mandela Theatre. Clegg found a home at Appleseed Records for 2010's Human. A concert set recorded in the fall of 2013, Best, Live & Unplugged: At the Baxter Theatre Cape Town appeared in 2014, also from Appleseed. ~ Craig Harris & Steve Leggett, Rovi

I purchased a Juluka album while in the Army attending Airborne School (I always had a flare for world music) back in 1992. Loved it ever since.
I saw Johnny last February and he's as good as ever. Gotta love the story behind Bullets for Bafazane and his son is one of the dancers!!
Johnny Clegg is as good as it gets. Give us all he's got! Thanks!

What about his solo album from 2007? I listen to it every day!!
I have met and danced with Johnny and Savuka at an intimate venue in Chicago back in 1991. A wonderful memorable evening I shall always treasure as one of my funnest adventures :)

it was definitely a treat to have seen Savuka in concert - animated, energetic - a few decades ago but one of the most memorable I've ever witnessed. More please!
willassilver
I have loved his music for years and had the good fortune to see a concert too. I am so grateful to be able to hear him again via this wonderful venue of Pandora. Thank you!

My Dad played this for my as a kid. This dude kills it. This is the s**t the should be on MTV. Real music
Is this artist seed based on one song?
bonhamc
Scatterlings is my favorite allbum too! fav track "Kwela Man"
oaklandact
I absolutely agree that there needs to be more world music selections and radio stations. A music station for African music would be fabulous.
There is an album called Scatterlings by Juluka. It's one of the best albums ever made. Juluka was not a band that Johnny Clegg "had". Rather, he was a member. "Simple Things", one of the cuts, is my all-time favorite song.
mdurgain
Johnny Clegg is a remarkable musician, performer and humanaitaria n . More, please!
Judging from the comments, I'd say that what we need is a station for African music.

Didn't Johnny Clegg have an earlier group called Jaluka(sp)pr i o r to creating Savuka? I remember an awsesome cut from that group (not the name unfortunatel y ) a n d a DJ's comment that the group was disbanded and the tracks were hard, if not impossible to get.
ib_ebenezer
I agree with all of you - hello, Pandora! More non-Western tunes please!
johnbl
They have one Ali Farka Toure album with Toumani Diabate as well, but I'd really like some D'Gary
No Albums from Johnny Clegg? and just 2 songs?
Your data base is in serious need of an Up grade
I have to agree, the world music category is sorely lacking on Pandora.
olotrop
Yes, where is Papa Wemba, and where is Salif Keita? What about Oliver Mtukudzi or Cheikh Lo? There is so little by Youssou N'Dour and Angelique Kidjo, and not their best. These are all big names!
where is Papa Wemba?

We need more variety in the World Music category like Johnny Clegg. Also, I could not find any songs from the Bhundu Boys - an African group.
