Bra Hugh Masekela performs at Glenlivent Legacy Live concert in Sandton.

The Glenlivet Single Malt Whisky hosted an unforgettable, intimate, music experience in Rivonia with the African father of jazz, the incomparable Bra Hugh Masekela and the internationally acclaimed American pianist, Larry Willis.

Guests received an insight into Masekela, a global icon who has had a journey within the industry that has given him a wealth of experience and wisdom. Part of his journey as a musician includes collaborating with the people he has worked with before and become lifelong friends with, including American pianist and equally celebrated musician, Larry Willis.

 “A legend is described as having single-minded determination and an irrepressible spirit. As a brand, we believe in the importance of showing our consumers what the brand and legends are about, and Hugh Masekela and Larry Willis embody everything we celebrate. Both artists have been nominated for, and won, a variety of awards, and even with more than seventy years of age behind both of them, their signature sounds are still traversing the globe – leaving a legacy behind for generations to come, much like George Smith who created The Glenlivet, the Single Malt Whisky which has left a legacy as the first licensed distillery in the world,” remarked Mandla Holomisa, The Glenlivet Brand Manager.
