    JOHNNY CLEGG & SAVUKA - Live ASIMBONANGA

    The name Juluka is from the Zulu word for sweat, and Savuka is from the Zulu word for we have risen or we have awakened.

    On my first trip to South Africa, I was invited to the premier of Johnny Clegg: A South African Story at The Nelson Mandela Theatre in Johannesburg. It was a magical night and I've been a fan ever since. I also had the privilege of seeing Mr. Mandela before he made his address at the UN WSSD (2012) in Johannesburg.
    The video is a tribute to both men, truly great South Africans...Viva ZA!

    Jonathan Johnny Clegg (born 7 June 1953) is a British-born musician from South Africa, who has recorded and performed with his bands Juluka and Savuka, and more recently as a solo act, occasionally reuniting with his earlier band partners. Sometimes called Le Zoulou Blanc (The White Zulu), he is an important figure in South African popular music history, with songs that mix Zulu with English lyrics and African with various Western music styles.
    Clegg was born in Bacup, Lancashire, to an English father and a Rhodesian mother. Clegg's mother's family were Jewish immigrants from Lithuania and Poland, and Clegg had a secular Jewish upbringing. Already in his youth, Clegg, a white, English-speaking person who was raised in the U.K., Israel, Rhodesia (present-day Zimbabwe), Zambia, and South Africa, became interested in Zulu street music and took part in traditional Zulu dance competitions.

    As a young man, in the early stages of his musical career, he combined his music with the study of anthropology, a subject which he also taught for a while at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, where he was influenced, among others, by the work of David Webster, a social anthropologist who was assassinated in 1989.

    In 1969, Clegg formed the first prominent racially mixed South African band, Juluka, with gardener and Zulu musician Sipho Mchunu. Because it was illegal for racially mixed bands to perform in South Africa during the apartheid era, their first album Universal Men received no air play on the state owned SABC, but it became a word-of-mouth hit.

    Juluka's / Clegg's music was both implicitly and explicitly political; not only was the fact of the success of the band (which openly celebrated African culture in a bi-racial band) a thorn in the flesh of a political system based on racial separation, the band also produced some explicitly political songs. For example, the album Work for All (which includes a song with the same title) picked up on South African trade union slogans in the mid-80's. Even more explicit was the later Savuka album Third World Child in 1987, with songs like Asimbonanga (We haven't seen him), which called for the release of Nelson Mandela, and which called out the names of three representative martyrs of the South African liberation struggle - Steve Biko, Victoria Mxenge, and Neil Aggett.

    As a result, Clegg and other band members were arrested several times and concerts routinely broken up.
    At the height of the band's success in 1988, Michael Jackson had to cancel his show in Lyon, France, as he attracted a smaller audience than Johnny Clegg and Savuka. A newspaper headline in France read white man singing black music, outsells black man singing white music.
    Johnny Clegg has performed on all four of Nelson Mandela's 46664 Aids Awareness Concerts in South Africa and in Norway. Mandela has joined him on stage during the rendition of Asimbonanga, a song written by Johnny about Mandela (and other struggle heroes) during his period of incarceration. At every live performance of this song, the audience, charged with emotion, spontaneously rises to their feet. During the Cape Town and Tromso 46664 shows, Johnny also performed duets of his work with Peter Gabriel

    Asimbonanga, also known as Asimbonanga Mandela), is an anti-apartheid song by the South African racially integrated band Savuka, from their 1987 album Third World Child. It alluded to Nelson Mandela, imprisoned on Robben Island at the time of song's release, and other anti-apartheid activists. It was well received, becoming popular within the movement against apartheid, and was covered by several artists including Joan Baez and the Soweto Gospel Choir.

    THE CROSSING - JOHNNY CLEGG

    Through all the days that eat away
    At every breath that I take
    Through all the nights I've lain alone
    In someone else's dream, awake

    All the words in truth we have spoken
    That the wind has blown away
    It's only you that remains with me
    Clear as the light of day

    O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
    (we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
    O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
    (we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
    Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
    (we are crossing over those dark mountains)
    Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
    (where we will lay down our troubles)

    A punch drunk man in a downtown bar
    Takes a beating without making a sound
    Through swollen eyes he sways and smiles
    'Cause no one can put him down

    Inside of him a boy looks up to his father
    For a sign or an approving eye
    Oh, it's funny how those once so close and now gone
    Can still so affect our lives

    O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
    (we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
    O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
    (we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
    Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
    (we are crossing over those dark mountains)
    Lapha sobheka phansi konke ukhulupheka
    (where we will lay down our troubles)

    Take me now, don't let go
    Hold me close, I'm coming home

    O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizofika webaba noma
    (we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
    O siyeza, o siyeza, siyagudle lomhlaba
    (we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
    Siyawela lapheshaya lulezontaba ezimnyama
    (we are crossing over those dark mountains)

    ►Madiba you will always be the light that shines in my heart, that hope and love among all peoples. We are all African ! I love you ♥ Kirnéa
    ☆ Nelson MANDELA né le 18 juillet 1918 à Mvezo Afrique du Sud est décédé le 5 décembre 2013 ☆
    → Etre libre, ce n'est pas seulement se débarrasser de ses chaînes, c'est vivre d'une façon qui respecte la liberté des autres.
    → Being free, it is not only to get rid of its channels, is to live in a way that respects the freedom of others.
    → Tous les hommes, même ceux apparemment les plus inaccessibles à la pitié, ont toujours un fond de bonté : si on arrive à toucher leur cœur, il est possible de les faire changer.
    → All men, even those seemingly most inaccessible to pity, still have a background of kindness : If we get to touch their hearts, it is possible to change.

    En 1962, lors du procès pour trahison qui lui valut d'être condamné à vingt-sept années de prison, Mandela n'a pas joué les héros. Bien des années plus tard, il observait simplement : J'étais le symbole de la justice dans le tribunal de l'oppresseur, le représentant de grands idéaux de liberté, de justice et de démocratie dans une société qui bafouait ces vertus.

    In 1962, during the treason trial which earned him being sentenced to 27 years in prison, Mandela has not played the hero. Many years later, he simply observed: I was the symbol of justice in the Court of the oppressor, the representative of great ideals of freedom, justice and democracy in a society that violates these virtues.

    Jonathan Clegg, dit Johnny Clegg, alias le « zoulou blanc », né le 7 juin 1953 à Bacup, aux environs de Rochdale, au Royaume-Uni, et mort le 16 juillet 2019 à Johannesbourg, en Afrique du Sud, est un auteur-compositeur-interprète sud-africain et un danseur de danses zouloues.

    Asimbonanga (« Nous ne l'avons pas vu » en zoulou) est une chanson du groupe sud-africain Savuka, dirigé par Johnny Clegg et créée en 1987. ... Le titre Asimbonanga fait référence au fait que personne ne sait à quoi ressemble Nelson Mandela, les photos de lui étant illégales.

    Nous Ne L'avons Pas Vu (Mandela) (1)

    [Refrain] (x2)
    Nous ne l'avons pas vu
    Nous n'avons pas vu Mandela
    A l'endroit où il est
    A l'endroit où on le retient prisonnier

    Oh, la mer est froide et le ciel est gris
    Regarde de l'autre coté de l'Ile dans la Baie
    Nous sommes tous des îles jusqu'à ce qu'arrive le jour
    Où nous traversons la mer de flammes

    [Refrain] (x2)

    Un goéland s'envole de l'autre coté de la mer
    Je rêve que le silence se brise
    Qui a les mots pour faire tomber la distance
    Entre toi et moi ?

    [Refrain] (x2)

    Steve Biko (2), Victoria Mxenge (3), Neil Aggett (4)

    Nous ne l'avons pas vu(e)
    Nous n'avons pas vu notre frère (Nous n'avons pas vu notre soeur)
    A l'endroit où il (elle) est
    A l'endroit où il (elle) est mort(e)

    Hé, toi ! Hé toi !
    Hé toi, et toi aussi !
    Quand arriverons nous à destination ?
