“Asimbonanga”

Posted by purplemary54 on December 7, 2013

Johnny Clegg & Savuka are a longtime favorite of mine.  With Savuka, and his earlier band Juluka, Clegg was at the forefront of the artistic struggle of South African artists and performers against Apartheid.  The simple fact that they were multiracial was somewhat revolutionary at the time, and their music reflected their political activism.

“Asimbonanga” translates to “We haven’t seen him.”
