Two-time Grammy awarded artist Hugh Masekela is Africa's most important jazz and world musician. His song called "Bring Him Back Home" became the anthem for Nelson Mandala's world tour following his release from prison. In 2010 Masekela opened both - the Kick off Concert and the opening ceremony of the World Cup in South Africa. Pianist Larry Willis has had an important and distinguished 40-year career in jazz. Since making his recording debut on Jackie McLean’s landmark 1965 album “Right Now!,” the New York-born Willis has played everything from free jazz to fusion to rock while performing as a valued sideman with such jazz titans as Dizzy Gillespie, Lee Morgan, Cannonball Adderley, Art Blakey and Woody Shaw.
