Johnny Clegg's second crossover band Savuka takes its name from the Zulu word for "We have risen". Savuka, like Clegg's first band Juluka before it, mixes African music with Celtic folk music and international rock sounds. They recorded four albums: Third World Child (1987), Shadow Man (1988), Cruel, Crazy, Beautiful World (1989), Heat, Dust & Dreams (1993). The last album was nominated for a US Grammy Award for the best world music album in 1993.

    Scatterlings and fugitives
    Hooded eyes and weary brows

    One day I looked up and there you stood
    Like a simple question looking for an answer
    Now I am a whale listening to some inner call
    Swimming blindly to throw myself upon your shores
    But what if I don't find when I have landed

    The world is full of strange behaviour
    Every man has to be his own saviour
    I know I can make it on my own if I try
    But I'm searching for a Great Heart to stand me by
    Underneath the African sky

    Hawu! Bheka Mama! Oye!
    Hamb'ugadile! (be alert and be on guard)
    I feel a river in flood in my veins
    I can feel your love in my brain
    It wants to dance my life
