Jazz legend Hugh Masekela is departing Trinidad and Tobago after spending three weeks in the country recording a new album.

The new work will be rooted in Calypso.

Masekela, a native of South Africa and world-renowned trumpeter, composer and singer, has been working in Trinidad on the album with Siparia Deltones, a local steel pan orchestra in the country.

He first had the idea for the project 10 years ago.

Masekela is receiving an official farewell reception hosted by Trinidad’s Arts and Multiculturalism Minister, Dr H Lincoln Douglas, on June 2 at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad in Port of Spain
