South African musician Johnny Clegg is about to embark on a tour of the US, and Thrillcall will offer giveaways for select cities! Johnny Clegg is an iconic star, gaining fame in the ’70s with his band Juluka. His music incorporates African influences that are said to have influenced Paul Simon’s Graceland. Clegg‘s namesake band came about later in his career, famously performing with Nelson Mandela on one occasion. His new tour of the US will start mid-March; see the full tour below!

Political strife can inspire great art, and Johnny Clegg’s internationally successful musical career represents that intersection of reality and creativity. The British-born, South African-raised Clegg has spent almost four decades writing and performing songs that reflect the topical and personal turmoil of life in his evolving homeland, pre- and post-apartheid. Clegg’s fusion of Western instrumentation and traditional African rhythms (with some lyrics sung in Zulu) is intimate and infectious. Clegg’s new CD, Best, Live & Unplugged at the Baxter Theatre, Cape Town (2014, Appleseed Recordings) showcases many of his most popular, powerful and universal songs.
