Johnny Clegg is a singer, songwriter, dancer, anthropologist and musical activist whose music has exploded onto the international scene and broken through barriers in his home of South Africa.Clegg and Sipho Mchunu formed mixed-race Juluka in the late `70s and 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 records, their second reaching 700,000 units. Savuka received a Grammy nomination for the Best World Music Album in 1993 but disbanded shortly thereafter. Three years later Clegg and Mchunu temporarily re-formed Juluka and recorded Ya Vuka Inkunzi (also released as Crocodile Love). Since then, Clegg has recorded several solo projects including his last album One Life (2007), New World Survivor in 2002 and A South African Story (2003). The Johnny Clegg Band continues to tour worldwide and will return to North America for a 32-city tour in March 2011, which will be a celebration of his 30-year anniversary as a performer.
