For one night only, as part of Auckland Arts Festival 2013, the ‘High Priest of Afrobeat’ and Grammy Award-winner Hugh Masekela (South Africa) will fill Auckland’s Town Hall with glorious sound and Afro groove. In his first New Zealand visit with his own band, the legendary 73-year old Hugh will tell the story of South Africa with his trumpet, a story shaped by a lifetime of music and political activism.

Famous for bringing Afrobeat out of Africa, Hugh is most familiar to New Zealanders for appearances alongside Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Miriam Makeba and Paul Simon on the tour of Simon’s Grammy Award-winning Graceland album. Inflected with the sounds of jazz luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Miles Davis and Louis Armstrong and the hard-driving Afrobeat of Fela Kuti, Masekela’s music will get you going.
