Johnny Clegg e Sipho Mchunu na década de setenta formaram a primeira banda musical sul-africana "daltónica", os Juluka que terminaram após anos de sucessos nacionais e internacionais quando o pai de Sipho lhe pediu que voltasse para o campo para cuidar do rebanho de cabras da família.


Clegg continuou! Desta feita em palco, o zulu branco e o xhosa universal!




Quem me conhece sabe como me brilham os olhos quando se fala da África do Sul. Esta música marejou-me a alma com as recordações daqueles quatro meses. Dos passeios, da música, dos sorrisos...

"Friends, comrades and fellow South Africans. I greet you all in the name of peace, democracy and freedom for all. I stand here before you not as a prophet but as a humble servant of you, the people. Your tireless and heroic sacrifices have made it possible for me to be here today. I therefore place the remaining years of my life in your hands.
I greet the traditional leaders of our country - many of you continue to walk in the footsteps of great heroes like Hintsa and Sekhukune. I pay tribute to the endless heroism of youth, you, the young lions. You, the young lions, have energised our entire struggle. I pay tribute to the mothers and wives and sisters of our nation. You are the rock-hard foundation of our struggle. Apartheid has inflicted more pain on you than on anyone else.
Our march to freedom is irreversible. We must not allow fear to stand in our way. Universal suffrage on a common voters' role in a united democratic and non-racial South Africa is the only way to peace and racial harmony. In conclusion I wish to quote my own words during my trial in 1964. They are true today as they were then: 'I have fought against white domination and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.'",
Nelson Mandela, excertos discurso no dia da sua libertação.
