One of South Africa's most celebrated musicians and cultural activists, Vusi Mahlasela is a guitarist, singer-songwriter, and poet but is known simply as The Voice in his South African homeland. Honoring the musical traditions of his youth during apartheid, Mahlasela and his band will be performing a new program he calls Township, which features the music of Dorothy Masuka, Brenda Fassie, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, and more.
