Johnny Clegg Band in Banff

Last weekend I got to see one of my all-time favourite bands perform live:

The Johnny Clegg Band

Johnny Clegg is an iconic South African muso, of Juluka and Savuka fame, who's been performing for over 30 years, with about 20 albums to his name.

It was an outstanding show, featuring many old favourites as well as several new pieces, along with Johnny's masterful storytelling.

If you know Johnny's music, you'll love the show ... if you like to listen to something different and would like to try some African fusion (fused with all sorts of things!), then this is the band.

They're currently touring to promote their latest album, Human. Find out more about the band on their website.

Below are a few shots from the show (I had permission from venue management to take my dslr in to the concert hall) - there are more in a set on my Flickr page:

Here's Johnny in a pensive moment ...

This is Mandisa Dlanga - she's been performing with Johnny since the early 80's (and she almost stole the show)!

There were even a couple of traditional dances:
