Hugh Masekela at 80
April 4, 2019 @ 19:00 - 21:00
The Africa Centre has teamed up with The Jazz Cafe, London to celebrate what would have been the legendary jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela‘s 80th birthday. Accompanied by Nigerian trumpet extraordinaire Etuk Ubong.
A leading figure in the struggle to end apartheid and “the father of South African jazz”, Masekela was one of the world’s most distinctive horn players, whose performing on trumpet and flugelhorn mixed jazz with South African styles and music from across the African continent and diaspora.
