An eclectic mix of hits and Masekela bits.
The Hugh Masekela Heritage Foundation Festival will be hosted by Kagiso Lediga and headlined by Msaki, Langa Mavuso, Mandisi Dyantyis, Berita, Muneyi, Gcina Mhlophe, and Tsogang Bana Dance Group. It will also feature tributes to Sibongile Khumalo by her daughter Ayanda Khumalo, and Tsepo Tshola, with local artist Mandla Ntlaks. Expect to be delighted by an eclectic mix of hits and Masekela bits.
Looking Ahead…And What We Bring With Us.
Inspired by Bra Hugh, this year’s festival theme of “Looking Ahead…And What We Bring With Us”, reflects the basic template he set for the festival’s line-up; a strong lean into African tradition, the innovative voice of the African streets, and the African soul, and an eclectic African syntax that defies the locked boxes of genre and type. As always, the Hugh Masekela Heritage Festival will showcase Bra Hugh’s eclectic and broad vision of culture, music, and heritage.
A post-New Year family-friendly fare
Sunday 23 January at 20:00 CAT is not only the broadcast date for this family-friendly festival, but it also marks the fourth anniversary of Bra Hugh’s passing and we cannot think of a more appropriate way to honor the tremendous creative energy that marked his phenomenal life.
We look forward to enjoying some good, quality live music while engaging via the official hashtag #HMHFestOnline, on all the official social media platforms:
