To celebrate his 75th birthday on April 4th, the legendary South African trumpeter, flugelhornist, composer, and lyricistHugh Masekela presents a retrospective extravaganza. Joined by associates from various stages of his career, he explores his fascination with American jazz and his deep roots in the Zulu folkloric strains that coalesced into the mbaqanga township dance band music of his homeland, from which he was exiled between 1960 and 1990. As is Masekela's custom, personal considerations will operate in the context of his ongoing quest to document, as he puts it, "the amazing diversity and unfathomable excellence of the African diaspora's cultural heritage."
Free pre-concert discussion, nightly, 7pm.
