Paul Simon returns to South Africa to explore the incredible journey of his historic Graceland album, including the political backlash he received for allegedly breaking the UN cultural boycott of South Africa designed to end the Apartheid regime.

In the run-up to an eagerly anticipated reunion concert, Simon, Quincy Jones, Peter Gabriel, David Byrne, Harry Belafonte, Paul McCartney and others reflect on the decision to record with local artists in South Africa, and the cultural impact of the album that delivered such hits as "I Know What I Know" and "You Can Call Me Al."Under African Skies featuring Paul Simon is streaming with subscription on Qello Concerts (Via Prime Video), available for rent or purchase on iTunes, available for rent or purchase on Google Play, and 2 others. It's a biography and documentary movie with a high IMDb audience rating of 7.8 (460 votes) and was very well received by critics.
