The new album is called No Borders.

Hugh Masekela needs very little introduction to South African audiences.  

A world-renowned flugelhornist, singer and defiant political voice, his eclectic musical style is infused with jazz and mbaqanga, combining his gravelly voice and smooth horn sounds with an ever-present concern for his home and country, having lived 30 years of his life in exile.  


In his career, he has released well over 40 albums and at the age of 77 he released his brand new work 'No Borders', featuring extraordinary collaborations with diverse artists including Zimbabwean legend Oliver Mtukudzi, J Something from pop group Micasa, Themba Mokoena, Salema Masekela and Sunny Levin. 

He has been celebrated in numerous ways over the years for his outstanding work and contribution to arts and culture and is currently using his global reach to spread the word about heritage restoration in Africa. 

"My biggest obsession is to show Africans and the world who the people of Africa really are," he says.
