We went to a Johnny Clegg concert. Clegg is a longtime revered South African songwriter and musician whose music is based on Zulu and Celtic influences. His early bands featured
white and black musicians singing songs with coded anti-apartheid messages.
Clegg's performances often feature his energetic foot-stomping Zulu-based dances.
In the song shown above, Clegg is backed by the award-winning Soweto Gospel Choir.
One of Clegg's best known songs is Asimbonanga, a 1987 protest song dedicated to Nelson Mandela,
who came onstage and danced to it in 1999 when he was South African President. After Mandela's death in 2013, Clegg re-recorded it. Today is Nelson Mandela Day in South Africa.
