Hugh Masekela is an international star and one of the most charismatic figures in South African culture.
He has been the heart and soul of South African music for forty years – even though he spent most of those years in enforced exile. His trumpet has been an instrument of resistance, a call to freedom and a celebration of the resilience of his people. His music has mourned the tragedy of apartheid and rejoiced at its demise.
Hugh Masekela is South Africa’s most enduring musical ambassador with music that brims over with a contagious, joyful warmth and optimism. “The man with the horn” is a living legend and a great performer.Hugh Masekela Website
