Chat with Hugh Masekela

You take the wheel in an interview with the legendary South African musician Hugh Masekela

World-renowned musician and struggle icon, Hugh Masekela holds a certain kind of gravitas. While his calls for African unity are still an example of his deep connection to home, Masekela has moved crowds all over the world. But what makes the man?

In a South African first, Design Indaba partnered with Glenfiddich to bring you a chance to interview the greats. Ask him who his idols are, find out why he believes people don’t make music anymore, allow him to bewitch you in the same way he was “bewitched with music at 16” – either way, you’re in control.

The Chats With series offers five more of South Africa’s top innovators. What are you waiting for?
