Remembering the Life of Hugh Masekela

The great South African Hugh Masekela passed away today at the age of 78 after a battle with Prostate Cancer. I was very fortunate to attend several of his shows. I became a fan of Masekela when I study abroad in Cape Town, South Africa. Masekela’s Bring Back Nelson Mandela, was an anti-apartheid anthem that introduced him and his music to people from various parts of the world.

Masekela was a very funny man. He demonstrated his sense of humor on stage. He was so charismatic on  stage. Hugh, the Father of South African Jazz, will be greatly missed.

Here are some of the songs that I was able to record from some of Masekela shows that I attended.
