WOMEX 11 AWARD WINNER - R.I.P. Hugh Maskela

WOMEX 11 Artist Award Winner Hugh Madekela

The legendary trumpeter Hugh Masekela has died at the age of 78.

We are saddened about this loss and remember Hugh Masekela as not only a wonderful musician but also a heartwarming human being, thinking back at how he played to the WOMEX community in Copenhagen two times on a Sunday in 2011 - on the WOMEX award stage and later that same day againn in 'Global' club, just for the fun of it! We got to know Hugh Masekela as a commited musician and musical activist.
