Over the course of a 40-year career—during which he has collaborated with a myriad of international artists from Paul Simon to Dizzy Gillespie to Ladysmith Black Mambazo to Alvin Ailey—this extraordinary trumpeter and composer has mixed the music of his native South African roots with the pop-jazz of the ‘60s. One of the world’s most versatile artists, Masekela’s Grammy® award-winning hit “Grazing in the Grass” sold over four million copies and made him an international star while his Broadway smash musical Sarafina introduced the sounds and passion of South African music to theatre audiences worldwide. Also known for his tireless work as an anti-Apartheid activist, his hit song “Bring Him Back Home” became an anthem for the Free Nelson Mandela movement. Now this great legend Rolling Stone applauds as being “one of the most thrilling live performers around,” stops in Marin Center for one night only performing classic favorites as well as hits from his new album Phola.
