Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, musician Dave Matthews became a dual citizen in 1980. Though he spends most of his time on U.S. soil, he visits his home country regularly and penned a famous essay titled, "My African Heart," about South Africa.
"I go back to South Africa at least once a year, sometimes twice, and usually for a month," he wrote. "And probably, I'm guessing, I'll spend more time back there as I get older. South Africa gives me a perspective of what's real and what's not real. So I go back to South Africa to both lose myself and gain awareness of myself. Every time I go back, it doesn't take long for me to get caught into a very different thing. A very different sense of myself. It's a melting pot, southern Africa. You find these cultural collisions that result in art and music, and it's pretty amazing."
