Two of South Africa’s true freedom fighters and renowned musical icons come together to honor
twenty years since the start of democracy in South Africa and the official end of Aparthe id. In a
collaborative performance, Hugh Masekela and Vusi Mahlasela celebrate this anniversary in Twenty
Years of Freedom, a concert that features South Africa’s freedom songs, including many of the artists’
own. While both have been like-minded musical comrades at home in South Africa for years and
shared the stage on several occasions, this marks the first time these two iconic artists have toured
Vusi Mahlasela—simply known as “The Voice” in his home country—is celebrated for his distinct,
powerful voice and his poetic, optimistic lyrics. His songs of hope connect Apartheid-scarred South
Africa with its promise for a better future. Raised in the township of Mamelodi (where he still
resides), Vusi became a singer-songwriter and poet-activist at an early age, teaching himself how to
play guitar and later joining the Congress of South African Writers. AfterWhen You Come Back, his
popular debut on BMG Africa, Vusi was asked to perform at Nelson Mandela’s inauguration in 1994.
He has shared the stage with Dave Matthews Band, Sting, Paul Simon, and Taj Mahal, among many
others. Perhaps his biggest gig was in 2010 when he helped welcome the World Cup to South Africa at
Orlando Stadium in Soweto. Vusi has released seven studio albums to date; his latest release is Sing
to the People (ATO Records), a celebratory live album looking back on twenty years as a recording
artist. Hugh Masekela is a world-renowned flugelhornist, trumpeter, bandleader, composer, singer,
and defiant political voice who remains deeply connected at home, while his international career
sparkles. In 1968, his instrumental single “Grazing in the Grass” went to the top of the American pop
charts and was a worldwide smash, elevating Hugh onto the international stage. His subsequent solo
career has spanned five decades, during which time he has released more than 40 albums (and been
featured on countless more) and has worked with such diverse artists as Harry Belafonte, Dizzy
Gillespie, The Byrds, Fela Kuti, Marvin Gaye, Herb Alpert, Paul Simon, Stevie Wonder, and the late
Miriam Makeba. In 1990, Masekela returned home, following the legalization of the African National
Congress (ANC) and the release of Nelson Mandela—an event anticipated in Masekela’s antiApartheid anthem “Bring Him Back Home (Nelson Mandela),” which had been a rallying cry around
the world.
