Rear Stalls

£60.50 inc. booking fee

£55.00 face value


World-renowned flugelhornist, trumpeter, bandleader and defiant political voice, Hugh Masekela is one of few artists to have captured the essence of Africa in song. For 78 years, South Africa was blessed with a phenomenal visionary who impacted African jazz with a unique brass tone and storytelling style. Renowned for international hits like Grazing in the Grass, Stimela and Bring Him Back Home, Masekela was a long-time friend of the EFG London Jazz Festival, always leaving his audience in awe through his remarkable talent and presence.

Together with the Masekela family and the Cape Town Jazz Festival, we have put together a complete evening to celebrate his life, featuring Hugh Masekela’s full band of musicians, a top-class brass section and a stellar cast of guest vocalists, all paying their love and respect to the great Bra Hugh. Sibongile Khumalo met Hugh upon his return from exile in 1990 and he encouraged her to develop her own unique vocal style, while the great Zimbabwean singer Oliver Mtukudzi and Bra Hugh shared a deep love for their African roots and heritage and Tsepo Tshola and his seminal band Sankomota toured with Bra Hugh in the 80’s, sparking their political activism.

‘My biggest obsession is to show Africans and the world who the people of Africa really are.’ (Hugh Masekela 1939 to 2018)
