Just 6 miles from the heart of Johannesburg, Gold Reef Casino features a premier musical venue with The Lyric Theater. Reminiscent of the great opera houses of years past, the venue will host Masekela for two nights of music between June 8th and 9th before the legendary musician begins a stint with Paul Simon for his Graceland Tour in Europe during July.
Punctuated by his penchant for professionalism and charisma, Masakela’s has entertained generations during his career, with countless records chronicled, heaps of awards, and a reputation for being one of the most substantial icons of African music. Drawing influence from his own life with his music, themes touch greatly upon the South African conflicts predominantly taking place in the 1950’s and 60’s and throughout the period of apartheid.
The jazz master’s unique sounds of bebop, afrobeat, and funk are sure to bring down the house for this memorable summer performance at Gold Reef Casino’s Lyric Theater.
