Hugh Ramapolo Masekela / 4 April 1939 – 23 January 2018

The South African trumpeter born and raised in a small mining township. Whose interest in music gave rise to his country`s first youth band. Who played as a member of Africa`s first recorded Jazz group. Whose protests against Apartheid, and the hardships faced by his homeland`s people, forced him into exile in the 1960s. To London and New York, and to international fame. Hugh Masekela, “The Father Of South African Jazz”, RIP.
