Unseen footage of the late legendary South African trumpeter, composer and singer Hugh Masekela and Trinidadian outfit Siparia Deltones recording of the collaborative album, Siparia To Soweto, released through Gallo Record Company and Montano’s Monk Music Group.

With its global outlook, Siparia To Soweto is a triumph of native sounds, celebration of legacy, and rhythmic highlighting of our shared lived experiences. It’s a testament to Bra Hugh Masekela‘s enduring impact as a provider of empowerment, pride, and melody.

“I would say that Hugh’s music, in this day and age, is not a symbol but rather a source. It’s a source assembled over a six-decade period that inspires, strengthens, instructs, empowers, and entertains. A symbol, to me, is something that represents the form or spirit of something else. Hugh’s music is not a symbol of a thing, Hugh’s music is the thing.”
