Hugh Masekela
The Chisa Years
Catalogue Number
Release Date
May 11, 2018


With the passing of Hugh Masekela in early 2018 the world lost one of the greats of 20th Century music. The South African trumpeter not only helped to bring his native land’s blues to a global audience, but he did it while remaining a fiercely defiant anti-Apartheid voice. This compilation collects work from Masekela’s decade on the Chisa label between 1965 and 1975. One of his great tricks was to always bring the best out of his collaborators - this compilation features great work from his time in the groups Ojah, The Zulus and more - and wed his political messages with righteous grooves in a manner reminiscent of Fela Kuti.
