Hugh Ramapolo Masekela, distinguished trumpeter, flugelhornist, singer, composer and advocate for African Heritage lived here. In three decades of exile, his music became a symbol of the country’s anti-apartheid movement. He pioneered his unique South African influenced style of jazz and fused it with music from across the African continent and diaspora. His hits include Grazing in the grass (1968), Bring him back home (1987) and Stimela (1974).
