Bra Hugh Rampolo Masekela

by Nelima

Bra Hugh Masekela is a musical genius who plays the trumpet, trombone, flugelhorn and cornet; he is a great singer and composer as well as a master storyteller, activist and history teacher (by way of his music).

At 72 he is still going strong and will be performing two shows a day on Feb 15th and Feb 16th at The Dakota Jazz Club and Restaurant. You really do not want to miss this.

Especially since you get a $10.00 discount off your tickets if you use the code name ‘MinneAfrica’ 🙂

We will again be running a lottery to give away 2 pairs of tickets to the 9:00pm shows. Email your full name and phone numbers to to be entered into the lottery. We will run the lottery at 6pm Monday Feb 13th so have your info to us by then.

I have posted some of Hugh Masekela’s big hits and my favorites below to whet your appetite. See you at the shows and good luck with the lottery 🙂

Here’s is his new song released last year in collaboration with Black Coffee


This song ‘Makoti’ is from his album ‘Jabulani’, which was released in S.A Sept. 2010, but released in the U.S end of last month.


Hugh Masekela performs his hit Grazing In The Grass as well as Pata Pata with Lira at the World Cup in South Africa.


Great performance of ‘Bring Him Back Home’ – which became the anthem of the movement to free Nelson Mandela.


The ‘Stimela’ performance is always a highlight on his shows.
