Much to many a collector’s delight, soundboards of The Grateful Dead’s opening acts from the early to mid-90s began surfacing in 2017. These included crystal clear and well balanced recordings of Traffic, The Black Crowes, Steve Miller, The Indigo Girls and this terrifically fun group from South Africa, Johnny Clegg & Savuka.
Savuka was a multi-racial South African band formed in 1986 by musician Johnny Clegg . The group blended traditional Zulu musical influences with Celtic and Rock msuic that had a cross-racial appeal in South Africa.

The recording features percussionist Dudu Zulu who was killed shortly after in 1992.
