Johnny Clegg at KUTX 3.18.14

The son of an Englishman and Zimbabwean mother, Johnny Clegg has roots in both South Africa and England. The multicultural perspective this fostered certainly weaved it’s way into Clegg’s music, a cool combination of Western pop and African Zulu rhythms. It also informs his lyrics. Beyond being a talented singer-songwriter, Clegg is also a dancer, anthropologist, and political activist. His outspoken perspective on migrant workers in South Africa and other worldly issues are inspiration for his songs and have helped garner him international success and earn a multitude of awards for his music and humanitarian efforts. Don’t miss Johnny Clegg with us live Wednesday March 18 at 2 p.m. and on the 19th at Austin’s One World Theater.
