Johnny Clegg live at the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens 2015

Johnny Clegg

Johnny Clegg is a dancer, anthropologist, singer, songwriter, academic, activist and French knight. Whilst all of these tags are fitting, none of them can accurately describe the energetic, passionate human being who has become one of South Africa's greatest musical exports. He has campaigned against the injustice of apartheid South Africa and been instrumental in putting the new South Africa on the map as a cultural ambassador. Clegg is an icon of South African music.

During the three decades he's been making anthemic hits, Johnny has proved himself to be an outstanding musical ambassador for his country and is known for his energetic stage performances. By combining African music structures with Celtic folk music and international rock sounds, Johnny pioneered a new and unique sound, establishing himself as South Africa’s biggest musical export. From Europe to the States, from Australia to Potchefstroom, audiences in sold out venues have danced to “Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World”, “Scatterlings of Africa”, “I Call Your Name”, “Impi”, “Great Heart”, and “African Sky Blue”.

Over Johnny’s 30 year career he released two dozen albums and in early 2014 he released a new unplugged album from his sold out shows at The Baxter Theatre in September 2013, titled JOHNNY CLEGG BEST, LIVE and UNPLUGGED.

Johnny will also be performing with his full band at the Walter Sisulu National Botanical Gardens on Sunday 30th August. Public are welcome to bring their picnic blankest and baskets and enjoy a sunset concert with Johnny at this amazing outdoor venue. Gates open at 3pm and the concert begins at 5pm.
