Fan, I have read about the white musician Johnny Clegg who wanted to learn Zulu music. It was against the law for him to associate with the Zulus in South Africa. The only way around it was to get a degree in Sociology so he could study Zulu music. He did that . Eventually he formed a mixed race group Jaluka and recorded with them and Savuka after apartheid was "dropped". He stopped when one of his band members was killed.
