As the sun sets over the African sky in Port Elizabeth the air will be filled with the memorable sounds of one of South Africa’s most iconic performers – Johnny Clegg.
Having just returned from sold out shows in America, Canada, France and Monte Carlo where he received a standing ovation at the Opera House when he performed for Prince Albert and Princess Charlene of Monaco,Johnny Clegg will be bringing his shows to Bramble Hill at Fancourt, George on Saturday 3 November and to The Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment world lawn area, Port Elizabeth on Sunday 4 November 2012.
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.
