barbican masekela willis

A rare chance to see the two jazz innovators reunite, combining Masekela’s exuberant horns with Willis’s elegant pianos solos.

Larry Willis and Hugh Masekela met whilst studying at Manhattan School of Music in the 1960s. The artistic freedom they experienced in New York, inspired their music making and their activism as Masekela became a leading figure in the fight against apartheid in his home country.

Masekela’s music has a distinctly African, more relaxed feel, whether on his political pop or experimental jazz; Willis’s is ambitious, frantic free jazz, inextricably linked to New York.
