The Africa Centre and Etuk Ubong present:
Hugh Masekela At 80

Thursday 4th April

We celebrate what would have been legendary jazz trumpeter Hugh Masekela’s 80th birthday in the company of Nigerian trumpet extraordinaire Etuk Ubong.

A leading figure in the struggle to end apartheid and “the father of South African jazz”, Masekela was one of the world’s most distinctive horn players, whose performing on trumpet and flugelhorn mixed jazz with South African styles and music from across the African continent and diaspora.

Having issued more than 40 albums across his career, his final one was No Borders, in 2016. Among his many awards was South Africa’s highest, the Order of Ikhamanga.
