Rolling Stone calls Hugh Masekela, "one of the most thrilling live performers around." Masekela is a pioneer in the world music and jazz scene.  This living legend has toured the globe and played with some of the most influential musicians of our time.

When Masekela became the only artist to take center stage before an audience of billions at both the 2010 FIFA Kick-Off and the event's Opening Ceremony it was a very public confirmation of the musician and songwriter's unparalleled standing within the South African music scene.

Indeed, Masekela's poignant, rousing live performance stands as an ongoing reminder of his global reach and mastery of the horn - something that is only strengthening in his 70s.  Audiences for tonight's event can expect a mix of Masekela's new music from his most recent album, Playing @ Work, songs from his 2012 Grammy Nominated release Jabulani, and timeless classics such as the US #1 hit, "Grazing in the Grass".
