One Night Only South Africa

Hugh Masekela is a musician with a real soul. He has a genuine warm, charismatic, and simple way of building special relationships, both with his fellow musicians and with an audience.

London Jazz

Spend an evening with the High Priest of Afrobeat and the voice of South African music.

Hugh Masekela has a groove shaped by a lifetime in music and political activism. Telling the story of South Africa with his horn, he moves with the energy and enthusiasm of a 20-year-old and sings with a spirit that will rock your soul.

Famous for bringing Afrobeat out of Africa, Hugh is most familiar to New Zealanders for appearances alongside Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Miriam Makeba and Paul Simon on the tour of Simon's Grammy-Award winning Graceland album. Inflected with the sounds of jazz luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong and the hard-driving Afrobeat of Fela Kuti, Masekela's music will get you going.

Beat a path to this full-on night of infectious rhythms from the townships of South Africa.

# In a nutshell: Afrobeats, seductive harmonies, inspiring and infectious rhythms.
