JAZZ Hugh Masekela

NCH, Dublin 8pm The leg­endary South African trum­peter blazed a trail for African jazz in the 1960s and risked life and lux­ury to op­pose the apartheid regime. His mu­sic ex­presses that uniquely poignant com­bi­na­tion of strug­gle and joy, which he shares with other greats such as John Coltrane. This 75th birth­day per­for­mance is ded­i­cated to the mem­ory of his friend Nel­son Man­dela, in the cause of whose re­lease Masekela was tire­less. With support from Ir­ish-Nige­rian group Tig Linn. CL
