Lorraine Klaasen

While she was still a child, none other than Madiba and Miriam Makeba were part of the circle frequented by Lorraine Klaasen. This daughter of jazz diva Thandie Klassen “is regarded as one of the great voices in world music” (RFI, 2016). She is one of the few artists to have preserved the authentic sound of Township Music, a fusion of marabi, jazz and Zulu beats: a “dense and colourful” musical style, in the words of this artist with her stunning stage presence.
