Hugh Masekela - and the Mahotella Queens archiveHugh Masekela has come to be known as a living legend in the half-century since he first picked up a trumpet, and luckily for us he shows no sign of putting it down yet. His voice has long spoken out in his country's struggle for civil rights, whilst his soaring, joyful trumpet sound brims with warmth and bristles with elements of township jazz, hip-hop and funk. Universally considered one of the world's all-time greatest horn players. An historic meeting bringing the warmth and optimism of South African music to the stage through two of the Rainbow Nation’s finest artists. Hugh Masekela has been at the heart of the music of his country through the years of struggle to liberation; his soaring, joyful trumpet sound nourishes the soul and frees the spirit. This is the first opportunity for a number of years to catch South Africa’s most enduring musical ambassador with his full band, following his World Cup opening concert performance. The Mahotella Queens have exerted enormous influence on the musical life of South Africa. Recognised for three decades of energetic and emancipating music, their mesmerising sound inspired the people of their country to dance and dream through the dark years of apartheid.
