JOHNNY CLEGG'S THE FINAL JOURNEY WORLD TOUR!
Johnny Clegg shares moments with all of us while singing some of his most popular hits, during the opening performance of his 'Johnny Clegg - The Final Journey World Tour' at Grand Arena ,GrandWest, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa on Friday 30th June 2017. A singer, songwriter, dancer, anthropologist, and musical activist, Johnny Clegg, the original 'White Zulu', pioneered an infectious crossover music genre by combining Western pop with Zulu rhythms, becoming one of South Africa's most celebrated musicians and an international superstar. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2015 but continued to tour while in treatment. While in remission, he is currently finishing a new album and his autobiography, and will perform a final set of concerts with the Johnny Clegg Band with special guest appearances by Sipho Mchunu from their band Juluka and his son Jesse Clegg to thank his fans for their support over the long journey that spans his remarkable career. This was a highlight for me as a visual storyteller because I grew up in South Africa during Apartheid with his music resonating deeply in me since watching the movie Jock of the Bushveld and hearing that song 'Great Heart' that speaks to me so personally. Last night was really special to me! Many thanks to Jeanette Gombert Odgers and Real Concerts for the opportunity for me to continue on my own journey with storytelling and thanks to Johnny Clegg: The Final Journey for an incredible experience!
