Hugh Masekela: Triumph With The Trumpet

World recognized musician and composer Hugh Masekela captures the heart of South African culture through his trumpet and vocals. Embodying a mix of jazz, bebop and funk, he pulls inspiration from the traditional weddings in his home of South Africa. Masekela was recently nominated for a Grammy in the best world music category for his 2010 album, Jabulani. With a collection of upbeat instrumentals, Jabulani conveys a sense of joy and celebration. He will be performing April 17 at the Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY, and April 20 at Pace University.
