Sweet South African soul from Hugh Masekela – a set that shows that Hugh's greatness certainly hasn't dimmed with time! There's a warm, captivating sound to the record that draws us in right away – a maturity to Masekela's approach – a depth that not only stretches back to his roots, but also seems to find a way to embrace other modes of South African music of the previous few decades too! Hugh plays plenty of his famous trumpet on the date, and also sings lead vocals on most titles – and tunes include "Fela", "Sossie", "Iph'Indlela", "Mfana", "Makoti", "Uyeyeni", "No Harvest", and "Scatter My Dada".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
