A lot is known about South African music legend Hugh Masekela, but less about his affection and contribution to musical theatre in South Africa. His early years found him involved in the productions of the African Jazz and Variety road show and the internationally acclaimed King Kong – Africa’s first Jazz opera.
As we celebrate Africa and Worker’s month, this tribute will showcase some of his best known theatrical songs and compositions. It will feature contributions from some of his most loved collaborators and will shine a spotlight on South African talent. They will be joined by a select group of eminent musicians who worked with Bra Hugh, as well as his members of the most recent Masekela touring band.
Enter below and let me know what your favourite Hugh Masekela song is!
Competition closes 28th April and winners will be notified by email.
