Formed by young friends Johnny Clegg and Sipho Mchunu in the 1970s. An
exploration of Zulu culture was a trademark of the band who built up a strong following among both black and white audiences in South Africa.

They released their debut album Universal Men in 1979 and followed this with a series of albums until 1985 when they broke up becasue Mchunu left the group to return to his farm.

Clegg and Mchunu reformed Juluka in 1997, released one further album (Ya vuka inkunzi) and performed gigs together for a few years before once again going their separate ways.
