Posted on: 23-03-2020 in In the SpotlightSome people transcend their chosen fields. Whether it’s sports, politics, film, music, or any other area, some rise above the rest. With offices globally, Holborn aims to appreciate the cultural heritage of the locations where we are located. That’s why we have launched our weekly series, In the Spotlight. Each week we will focus on a different global icon and their contribution to their respective country. This week we focus on South African musician, Johnny Clegg. “Music can raze out the written troubles of the brain.” That is a quote from William Shakespeare. Going back 400 years, people recognised how powerful music could be. Over the centuries, music styles and the way we access it has changed drastically. However, the fundamental principles that make music so powerful remain. Music can have a profound impact on your emotions, bring people together, and start movements. The power of music can even inspire change. This was the case in South Africa, where music played a big part in the movement against apartheid. Non-violent protest and boycotts were the weapons of choice for many of those who opposed apartheid. To raise awareness and gather support, artists used their music. It was one man’s pioneering approach to music that united people across races in South Africa – Johnny Clegg.
