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