Most of you may know Sal Masekela from the E! Channel, hosting the X Games on ESPN or even as a pro surfer, but Sal is so much more. Selema 'Sal' Masekela is the the son of Hugh Masekela – musician, activist and father that was exiled from his family and native South Africa for over 30 years as a direct result of Apartheid.
Sui recently went to NY for the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of ALEKESAM. A mini documentary that started out as a four minute promo for Sal's new album, but instead turned out to tell an inspiring story of a father exiled from his country, a son exiled from his father, and their mutual attempt to connect to the world, and each other through music. The film was amazing!
