Hugh Masekela

With a career that has spanned over four decades, legendary South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela is no less than a worldwide superstar, and his trumpet has long been a call to freedom and a celebration of the resilience of his people.

Touring in support of his best album in years, Phola, Masekela and his hot new South African band create supple grooves that blend Afro-beat, funk, and jazz. 

Attend a free Hugh Masekela lecture, "The Artist's Role as Activist," Thursday, October 14, 7:00 p.m., at Lesley University's Prospect Church, 1803 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge.
