Hugh Masekela is a world famous flugelhornist, trumpeter, bandleader, composer, and singer. In 1960, at the age of 21 he left South Africa and started what ended up being thirty years in exile from SA. When he got to New York he enrolled at the Manhattan School of Music and immersed himself in the jazz scene. He’s performed alongside Janis Joplin, Otis Redding, Ravi Shankar, The Who, and Jimi Hendrix in 1967. In 1968 his instrumental single ‘Grazin’ in the Grass’ went to number one on the American pop charts .
‘With Her Hand’ is a deep musical piece and focuses on a topic close to the hearts of the artists who made it. Lyrically inspired by the reconciliation of Winnie Mandela with Nelson shortly before his sad passing in 2013.
