My Favorite Groups

Almost all of my favorite music is Africa and most of that is South African
Here is glimpse into some of music that I listen to on a day to day basis..


Johnny Clegg and Savuka

Johnny Clegg has been in two bands, Juluka and Savuka and he has also done some solo work. I have been an avid fan since my brother gave me a tape of their work in the early eighties and I have tried to get my hands on any of his work. This has not been easy due to the fact that there is not a wide selection of import shops in Calgary. I had always wanted to see Juluka/Savuka live and after numerous failed attempts, I finally got to see a Juluka live in 1997 in Vancouver Canada.

Just about any African music is appealing to me, especially music from South Africa. Having been born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa,. I have always been drawn to African music. I find that for the most part, African music, as well as having an awsome beat, always seems to have a good feel to it. some of my favorites include Black Umfolozi, Noise Khanyile, Amaduduzo and numerous compelation CD's.

African music featuring artists such as King Sunny Ade, Miriam Makeba, Amapondo, The Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Bongo Maffin and more. some of these artists are a little off the usual track but I like them equally.
