Hugh Masekela Videos
Two of South Africa's true freedom fighters and renowned musical icons will come together to honor 20 years since the start of democracy in South Africa and the official end of Apartheid.
In a collaborative performance with a band, Hugh Masekela and Vusi Mahlasela will pay homage in "20 Years of Freedom: featuring South Africa's Freedom Songs," including many of their own.
While both artists have been like-minded musical comrades at home in South Africa for years and shared the stage on several occasions, this marks their debut tour joining forces together.
The dynamic show, backed by their five-piece all-star band, features both artists collaborating together on stage for their entire show. Their set will include many of their greatest songs from their respective catalogs.
