Hugh Masekela

When: Mon., Oct. 11, 7:30 p.m. 2010

It's been more than four decades since versatile hornman Hugh Masekela rose to fame outside his South African homeland with "Grazing in the Grass"—a jazzy instrumental that garnered Masekela a Grammy nod and became an unlikely chart topper. He quickly became one of the most recognizable faces of African music in the western world, thanks to collaborations with Paul Simon and The Byrds, and deservedly so. Tonight, Masekela counters soulful bop and ballads with unbridled joy on impassioned, Afropop-infused numbers rich in both spirit and tradition. —Spencer Griffith
