Savuka was a band formed in 1986 by English-born South African Johnny Clegg after the disbanding of his first band, Juluka. Both of his bands were inter-racial in the racially segregated Apartheid South Africa. Savuka followed more of a Western pop rock style blended with Clegg's familiar, distinctive Zulu musical stylings, creating a unique sound that was something of a major departure from the old, more traditional Zulu sound of Juluka.
They had a UK #75 hit in 1986 with a new version of the earlier Juluka hit 'Scatterlings of Africa'.
Percussionist Dudu Zulu was killed in 1992. "The Crossing" was a tribute to him.
Savuka released five studio albums:
- Third World Child
- Cruel, Crazy Beautiful World
- Heat, Dust And Dreams
- Shadow Man
- In My African Dream (more of a best-of compilation, but including some previously unreleased tracks)
A version of the song "Dela (I Know Why The Dog Howls at the Moon)" appears on the soundtrack for the movie George of the Jungle.
