masakelaOn Friday, February 8, UCSB Arts & Lectures presents the music of Hugh Masakela Chissa All-Stars @ 8:00 PM in UCSB Campbell Hall. This event is proudly sponsored by KCSB.

For four decades, South Africa’s legendary Afropop jazz ambassador, Hugh Masakela, has pursued his own blend of South African music, mixing in elements of R&B, jazz, blues, urban soul, and hip-hop; and collaborated with such luminaries as Harry Belafonte, Dizzy Gillespie and Paul Simon. One of the earliest leaders in world music fusion, Masekela will perform with a dynamic line-up of artists from Chissa Records, the company he recently founded to develop original South African talent.
