    In the `60s, the South African-born trumpeter, producer, and composer Hugh Masekela played a pivotal role in introducing African music to western audiences. His albums made explicit the connection between African folk forms and African-American musical idioms like blues, jazz and soul. HOPE is a live album that captures Masekela performing in D.C. with an accomplished, all-African band in 1993. On HOPE, Masekela revisits many of the highlights of his career, including his tribute to South Africa, "Uptownship," and the strident protest number, "Mandela."
