France : Europe/Paris

Hugh Masekela at Paris Jazz Festival

With Abdullah Ibrahim, Masekela is one of the pioneering figures of South African jazz. With his music, the trumpeter, flugelhornist, singer and composer has strongly influenced the political emergence of the anti-apartheid movement which he helped bring to international attention, through noted performances such as the one he gave in Monterey alongside Otis Redding and Jimi Hendrix back in 1967, or his appearance on Paul Simon's multi-million selling Graceland album. Fresh from his presence at Barack Obama's second inauguration ball, Masekela will present his latest project at Parc Floral, a celebration of his late wife, South African diva Miriam Makeba.
