[LISTEN] Electric cello trio release classic Clegg cover in aid of local charity


49 days ago

All-female electric cello trio Rosanthorn is honouring the musical legacy of the late Johnny Clegg by releasing a cover of his hit song Scatterlings of Africa.

Clegg died at the age of 66 last month following a battle with pancreatic cancer.

One-third of the group Carol Thorns joined Pippa Hudson in studio on Friday and says they actually recorded the track over a year ago.

Suddenly everything aligned and it felt like the right time to release the song.

The group will be donating half of the proceeds of the track to the Franschhoek Hospice.
