This may not be perfect, but I noticed there was nothing on the site for either Juluka or Johnny Clegg, so 
had to try.  If you haven?t heard this music, you are missing out.  It is some of the coolest, craziest, 
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
