Today the world lost the legendary jazz musician, Hugh Masekela. He not only gave us his songs and a reason to dance and listen to jazz but he also gave South Africans hope for liberation from apartheid through his music that reflected his experiences in the harsh political climate of the country.
South Africans and people the world over will not forget him. Rest in peace Hugh Masekela.
