Overview

Inspired by South African wedding traditions remembered from his youth, trumpeter Hugh Masekela's 2012 album Jabulani is a celebratory mix of jazz, pop, and African sounds. Backed by a bevy of talented musicians even including a small choir, Masekela is in top form throughout this celebratory album. From the opening anthemic "Sossie" to the earthy "Bambezela" and the bright and happy "Makoti (Bride)," Masekela brings his rousing trumpet and flügelhorn style to these joyous tracks that more often than not also feature his passionate and rousing vocals.
