In Paul Simon's legendary album Graceland, you can easily feel the interactions from Simon's elapse time in South Africa and the discoveries he did there. Under African Skies, which documents Simon's comeback to South Africa to celebrate Graceland's 25th anniversary, is not only about the Paul Simon gig in the country. It also includes some worthy footage from old archives as well as the political backdrop in South Africa from the time the album was recorded.
