By Marius Bosch JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - For nearly three decades, very few people except prison guards and fellow inmates knew what Nelson Mandela looked like. But his imprisonment and the fight against the apartheid government in South Africa was kept on the world stage by music - from ska and reggae songs to jazz - with one common message: Free Nelson Mandela. They are being played and replayed as South Africa commemorates its first black president with a memorial ceremony on Tuesday to be attended by a host of global leaders. "It is music and dancing that makes me at peace with the world and at peace with myself," Mandela said in 1999 after joining South African singer Johnny Clegg - the "White Zulu" - on stage in France.
