Johnny Clegg is one of South Africa’s most celebrated sons. He is a singer, a songwriter, a dancer, anthropologist and a musical activist whose infectious crossover music, a vibrant blend of Western pop and African Zulu rhythms, has exploded onto the international scene and broken through all the barriers in South Africa. In France, where he enjoys a massive following, he is fondly called Le Zulu Blanc – the white Zulu.
Over three decades, Johnny Clegg has sold over five million albums worldwide. He has wowed vast audiences with his audacious live shows and won a number of national and international awards for his music.
Johnny Clegg’s history is as bold, colourful and dashing as the rainbow country which he has called home for more than 40 years. Join us and listen to Johnny tell his story at Ellerman Sessions.
