WINDHOEK – Namibian jazz lovers are in for a nostalgic musical treat when local jazz sensation and saxophonist, Suzy Eises, pays homage to late South African jazz legend and human rights activist Hugh Masekela, at the National Theatre of Namibia (NTN) this Saturday.
This is to celebrate the life and music of the iconic pioneer of jazz before, during and after exile. Suzy and her band will be joined by seasoned international artists Dan Shout on saxophone, and Vaughn Fransch on trumpet. “I had the distinguished honour to share a stage with Masekela and I always looked up to him as a young aspiring musician. Bra Hugh (as he was affectionately known) had a unique way of telling stories through his music and I believe that it is only befitting that as Namibians and fellow Africans we ought to celebrate and honour a life well lived,” says Suzy. Tickets are available at Computicket for N$250 in advance and N$300 at the door.
