Musician urges delegates to consider culture
Agencies via Xinhua for The New China Daily

JOHANNESBURG: Plans to save the planet will fail if they ignore the traditions of developing cultures, said South African musician Johnny Clegg, who won the nickname of the "White Zulu" during the days of apartheid.
Clegg, 48, is also a well-known anthropologist who livens up his concerts with Zulu dancing and anecdotes about his experiences of the warlike culture, which rejects Western notions of self-control and predictability for men.

He said that delegates to the Earth Summit should tailor schemes for clean water, farming and other forms of sustainable development to blend with traditions in the communities at which they are aimed.

Ahhhh, I wish I was there!! I am so glad they included a cultural component in this VERY important conference. I LOVE Johnny Clegg; he used to work with a group called Savucca.
