Hugh Masekela memorial service details
Bid farewell to Bra Hugh at these Jozi venues and parks
Posted: Jan 25 2018
Following the passing of the great Bra Hugh, the Hugh Masekela Heritage Foundation has announced the details of the musician’s memorial celebrations.
Masekela will be laid to rest at a closed funeral service for family and friends, but members of the public are invited to join in on public memorial events held around Johannesburg from 26 January.
If you missed out on the memorial event in Alex this 26 January, be sure to catch the Hugh Masekela Musical Memorial at UJ’s Soweto campus this 28 January. The event is a musical celebration of the legendary trumpeter’s life, featuring a range of artists he collaborated with, influenced and loved.
There will also be a Hugh Masekela Heritage Park at Zoo Lake until 1 Feb 2018. A temporary visitors centre of sorts, the Heritage Park will feature visuals, footage and audio that reflect Masekela's rich and inspiring life journey.
