This may not be perfect, but I noticed there was nothing on the site for either Juluka or Johnny Clegg, so I had to try.  If you haven’t heard this music, you are missing out.  It is some of the coolest, craziest, most beautiful music ever made.  I must say, I would like to 
know about the story behind the song.  If anyone, Johnny Clegg included, could drop an
e-mail and explain the inspiration behind this song, I would be anxious to learn more about it.  Please write at fhowell@audubon.k12.ia.us
