Thuma Mina (Send Me) | The People’s Version – The Masekela All-Stars

Feat. Abigail Kubeka, Vusi Mahlasela, Thandiswa Mazwai, Zolani Mahola, J’Something and Selema Writes. Get the track:

The people of South Africa are facing tremendous challenges in the wake of COVID-19, including severe poverty, a compromised economy, lack of access to healthcare and education, corruption and gender-based violence. Together, with a little help from some friends, Constitution Hill in partnership with the Hugh Masekela Heritage Foundation, have joined forces to produce a collaborative re-working – A People’s Version – of the late, great Masekela’s anthemic Thuma Mina. This People’s Version strives to mobilise the citizens of South Africa into action, in support and empowerment of one another.
