Masekela at The Sage - Tonight!

Tonight I guess all roads will lead to The Sage, Gateshead, for a rare appearance by South African Legend, trumpet player, voicer, Hugh Masekela and his full band. Every note, every word echoes both joy and sadness as Masekela digs deep beneath the surface of South African 'Culture'.
It will be a night that shouts out 'Freedom'.
It will be a night that will stay with us for ever.
Supporting, the Mohatella Queens vocal trio should also bring the raw energy of the Townships to Gateshead who I am sure will give back some of its own in appreciation.
Lance.
