Friday favourite 66

An interesting documentary on the Beeb this week about the 25th anniversaty of Paul Simon's Graceland album and the controversy it caused in breaking the UN cultural boycott of apartheid South Africa.  It's well worth picking up on iplayer.

But it reminded me of another more obscure artist (at least in the UK) who also fell foul of the boycott - Jonny Clegg.  Here he is with his band Jaluka with Scatterlings of Africa from May 1987 his only UK hit.
