An incredible new jazz musical with Hugh Masekela and Sibongile Khumalo
Created by the legendary trumpeter and composer, Hugh Masekela. Featuring songs by the like of Joseph Shabalala, Dorothy Masuka, Miriam Makeba, and Masekela himself, among many others, the whole show operates like an extravagant jazz gig, with the band taking centre stage and all the players singing and acting around them. There’s an incredible take on Ladysmith Black Mambazo’s Nomathemba and the music then swings through the cotton fields of the Mississippi and the old gospel of the American South, via Nigeria with Fela Kuti’s Languta before returning to South Africa for the finale. Written and directed by James Ngcobo.
