Musical activist Johnny Clegg brings South Africa in the form of song when he returns to The Ridgefield Playhouse
It has been a musical journey of more than 30 years for Johnny Clegg, from when he first began to experiment with truly South African cross-over music, and at the same time became a cultural activist in the struggle against apartheid. The Ridgefield Playhouse and Palm Bay International World Beat Series present the Johnny Clegg Band on Wednesday, March 30 at 8 p.m. Special Guest is Johnny’s son, Jesse Clegg. Founder of the seminal South African Bands Juluka and Savuka, Johnny Clegg has become one of South Africa’s most celebrated sons. Johnny campaigned against the injustice of apartheid long before it was popular and lead an integrated band decades before Paul Simon’s Graceland. As a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, anthropologist and musical activist, his infectious crossover music—a vibrant blend of Western pop and African Zulu rhythms—has not only broken down musical barriers in his adopted country but has made him an international star. As part of the Palm Bay International World Beat Series, there will be a free wine tasting in the lobby at 7:15 p.m.
