Music, says Hugh Masekela, ‘makes life simple because it’s not translatable as a language ... It goes to the heart and the mind.’ This concert celebrates the legendary South African trumpeter’s 70th birthday in 2009. It ranges from urban folk songs to pieces by British jazz musician Jason Yarde, but also pays tribute to Masekela’s love of his country: ‘It's time to be focused on things that bring joy and healing to people.’
