Hugh Masekela

“Sad to say goodbye to the great Hugh Masekela – from the Jazz Epistles on, he was a legendary player and composer.

Miriam Makeba and Masekela were the father and mother of contemporary South African music, comfortable mixing styles and influences.

Masekela was also the dominant musical figure of the Anti-Apartheid movement, and was an inspiration to many of us.

His music and his courage will live on.”

– Peter Gabriel
