Vusi Mahlasela in Northampton

Vusi Mahlasela, a singer-songwriter, guitarist and activist who lives in South Africa, performed an outstanding public concert in Northampton on February 16. Mahlasela was active in the movement that overthrew the apartheid government in South Africa. In 1994, he performed at Nelson Mandela’s presidential inauguration.

"Vusi has a sort of profound beauty about him. He has a light on," said two-time Grammy award winner Dave Matthews.

Mahlasela's newest album was released last month. It was produced by Henry Saint Clair Fredericks, also known as Taj Mahal. Majal grew up in Springfield, Massachusetts and went to UMass Amherst. The February 16 concert was at the Iron Horse Music Hall.
