It was Hugh Masekela's birthday this week. 75 and still touring!
Hugh Masekela, the great South African jazz musician, grew up in South Africa before going to New York where he studied music. He returned home in 1990 and has continued to work to spread the word about "who Africans really are". Here is a biography and here is a video of his version of a Bob Dylan classic. Happy birthday, Mr Masekela!
