Carnegie Hall Citywide: Lorraine Klaasen
Lorraine Klaasen is South African music royalty. The daughter of renowned jazz singer Thandi Klaasen, Lorraine honors the vibrant musical traditions that were born in the townships: the poor, racially segregated urban areas of South Africa’s apartheid era. Influenced by such South African legends as Miriam Makeba—the inspiration for her 2013 JUNO Award–winning tribute album— Lorraine Klaasen makes the music her own with her impassioned singing and dynamic stage presence.
