We do these sessions once a month which are very intimate sessions behind the scenes where we get top South African artists.Paul Bruce-Brand, Ellerman House General manager
So we thought it would be so incredible to do something for the impact that Johnny Clegg has had on my life and the lives of pretty much every musician. I was chatting to Karl Morbee from the Parlotones and we thought, why don't we get a few musicians together and do a tribute song. I think everyone is blown away.Paul Bruce-Brand, Ellerman House General manager
