A warm welcome back to South African music legend, Hugh Masekela! With his unique, vibrant trumpet style and driving six-piece band he gave a pulsating performance that was one of the highlights of YSJF 2013.

In 1968, his instrumental single Grazin’ in the Grass went to Number One in the American pop charts and was a worldwide smash hit. His subsequent solo career has spanned five decades, during which time he has released over 40 albums and worked with such diverse artists as Harry Belafonte, Dizzy Gillespie, The Byrds, Fela Kuti, Marvin Gaye, Herb Alpert, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder.
