Hugh Masekela - Bring Him Back Home mp3 album

Bring Him Back Home (Nelson Mandela)", also known as "Bring Him Back Home", is an anthemic anti-apartheid protest song written by South African musician Hugh Masekela. It was released as the first track of his 1987 album Tomorrow. It was recorded in 1986 when Masekela was in exile from the apartheid regime of South Africa. The melody of the song is buoyant, containing a number of powerful chords and trumpet riffs.

Album: Hugh Masekela: Greatest Hits, 1999. Hugh Masekela - Bring Him Back Home (Nelson Mandela) from Paul Simon's "Graceland - The African Concert" (Zimbabwe, 1987). Recorded in 1986 for his Tomorrow album, the song and it's wish became a reality when Mandela was released in 1990, and it was played during his many visits to America following his release, as well as on numerous television broadcasts.

Not only was Nelson Mandela the most famous modern day political prisoner, he was also one of the biggest fans of Hugh Masakela. So great, in fact, that he was able to smuggle a letter to him in April 1985 (for Masakela's birthday) from Pollsmoor Prison, which wished him luck on his recording projects and other good tidings. Masakela was so moved by this letter that he wrote this fabulous anthem, which envisioned Mandela walking freely down the streets of South Africa.

Hugh Masekela and his band performing Grazing in the Grass, 2014. In 1967, now living in California and having divorced Makeba after only two years of marriage, he played at the Monterey festival alongside Janis Joplin and the Who. The following year he released the single Grazing in the Grass, an instrumental produced by his friend Stewart Levine that became a massive hit, topping the US charts for three weeks. The cover of his Emancipation of Masekela album (1966) showed him dressed like Abraham Lincoln and was boycotted by distributors in the American south. Later, he followed his easygoing hit single with a furious, experimental set that included songs about Vietnam and the plight of migrant workers in South Africa Inside, Masekela performed his rousing anti-apartheid anthem Bring Him Back Home (Nelson Mandela) and his song about migrant workers, Stimela.
