Born and raised in Soweto, Lorraine Klaasen is one of a handful of South African artists to preserve the classic sound of “township music” – a genre born in South Africa’s marginalized, apartheid-era housing projects – which continues to be the most distinctive sound to come out of the country. Influenced by singing legends of the 50s and 60s including Miriam Makeba, Dolly Rathebe, and Busi Mhlongo, the 2013 Juno Award nominee has electrified audiences worldwide with her dynamic stage presence and showmanship, accomplishing her childhood dream of taking “township music” to the rest of the globe and creating a truly African sound.
