Hugh Masekela has come to be known as a living legend in the decades since he first picked up a trumpet, and luckily for us he shows no sign of putting it down yet. Celebrating his 75th birthday by embarking on tour with his full band; there are bound to be celebrations a-plenty on the way.

His voice has long spoken out in his country’s struggle for civil rights, whilst his soaring, joyful trumpet sound brims with warmth and bristles with elements of township jazz, hip-hop and funk. Universally considered one of the world’s all-time greatest horn players, he remains, in the words of the Independent; ‘a musician of phenomenal grace and power...still blessed with a voice that can strip the leaves from the trees.’
