South African jazz legend Hugh Masekela lived up to his billing and left the crowd crying out for more at an epic performance at the 7 Arts Theatre in Harare.
“Music is the most powerful tool to empower people,”
When Hugh Masekela finished his Oppikoppi set to rapturous applause, a member of his crew wrapped a champion’s belt around his waist as if he was an undisputed heavyweight boxer.
Friday’s concert was full of South African rhythms and songs that pushed earnestness toward joy.
“I cry whenever I eat Julie mango, it is such a joy,” he said.
