(CNN) – Johnny Clegg, the South African singer known for Zulu rhythms and sounds with Western styles, has died, his manager Roddy Quin said in a statement.

The 66-year-old died on Tuesday at his family home in Johannesburg, South Africa.

He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2015 but continued to tour around the world.

Clegg’s music has been described as groundbreaking during the apartheid era. He co-founded two interracial bands, including Juluka with Sipho Mchunu and Savuka with Dudu Zulu.

“He showed us what it was to assimilate to and embrace other cultures without losing your identity,” Quin said. “An anthropologist that used his music to speak to every person. With his unique style of music he traversed cultural barriers like few others. In many of us he awakened awareness.”

The South African government also shared its condolences to Clegg’s family and friends. “He has left deep footprints in our hearts,” according to its Twitter account. “He showed us what it was to assimilate to and embrace other cultures without losing your identity.”

‘What’s been fashionable never bothered us’ … Beverly Hill, Ian A Anderson and Caroline Walker of fRoots magazine, at Bracknell folk festival, 1985. Photograph: Dave Peabody

When much-loved magazines fold, tributes quickly gush about how they captured new trends or scenes. But some magazines, like fRoots, have always sat outside time. A champion of the local and the international underground for over 40 years, it announced its closure last week after advanced discussions with a new publishing company fell through; an official statement online added that “decreased advertising support in the digital age, along with current political and economic uncertainties” hadn’t helped.

Take a look at its recent 40th-anniversary edition: it’s like a huge fanzine created by a groovy uncle, occasionally gazing at the mainstream but much happier exploring the margins. Its going out guide is staggeringly broad, revealing a fertile UK festival and gig scene rarely covered by the national press. Features include a dig into Kate Bush’s traditional roots, reports on the qawwali ensembles of Pakistan and a free desert festival in Morocco, plus Scottish folk musician Alasdair Roberts celebrating new artist Burd Ellen’s songs about women. The huge reviews section takes in London’s Cafe Oto, Korean experimentalist Park Jiha and Topic Records’ 80th-anniversary CD. Trendy bells and whistles are few, but it’s a rich treasure trove.Folk Roots magazine, with folk musician Shirley Collins on the cover.

fRoots began in 1979, at the height of post-punk and disco. Back then, it was The Southern Rag, a regional quarterly for central and southern England celebrating folk and roots music. It took off. In 1984 it was renamed Folk Roots, going monthly and national on the newsstands with a booming subscription base.

Sandy Denny was just another relatively obscure folk singer in London when a song she wrote, “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” showed up on the American pop charts as the title track of a top-30 album in 1968 by singer Judy Collins.

Collins, an astute interpreter who had brought the songs of artists such as Joni Mitchell and Leonard Cohen to a wider audience when they were still relative unknowns, heard genius in “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?” and she wasn’t wrong.

A few months later, Denny – all of 22 years old – would record her own definitive version of the song. It would appear as the centerpiece of Fairport’s third studio album, “Unhalfbricking,” released 50 years ago this month. It inspired countless more covers by a stellar list of artists, from country great Charlie Louvin and Cat Power to Nina Simone and 10,000 Maniacs. But none rival Denny’s version with Fairport, a mix of beauty, sadness and wonder that grows richer with each listen.

The album and the song in particular underlined the artistry of Denny and her bandmates, particularly 20-year-old guitarist Richard Thompson, and sparked a new strain of distinctly British folk-rock that inspired countless bands and artists, including Steeleye Span, Nick Drake and even Led Zeppelin, who recruited Denny to duet with Robert Plant on the distinctly Fairport-like “The Battle of Evermore” in 1971. In later generations, the Fairport sound underlies the work of countless bands, including Mumford & Sons, Fleet Foxes and the Decemberists.
