    Great guy, great band. We saw him here in London a few years ago, just terrific. My wife is a big fan and will be shocked.

    RIP.

    Always liked Juluka and what they stood for. Not familiar with his second band.

    Saw Clegg and Savuka at the Danforth Music Hall (when it had seats) probably in the 90's. Loved that music. And the dancing with the high kick was mesmerizing.

    Fairly true of the two first bands lol, however he has also released a bunch of solo stuff since then over the years, and some great stuff it is.

    Saw Johnny Clegg & the Savuka for the first time when they played outdoors at the Montreal Jazz Festival in 1988. The groove, the dance and more importantly, what they stood for (Clegg talked about it between songs), were just "Wow". Went to the Sam the Record Man shop nearby and bought the Shadow Man LP right after. The follow-up album "Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World" was even better. Still have them.

    R.I.P. Johnny Clegg
