Carnegie Hall Citywide: Lorraine Klaasen

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 7 PM Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture
Lorraine Klaasen
Please note that this event, originally scheduled to take place on Monday, February 18, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, January 29.

Lorraine Klaasen
is South African music royalty. The daughter of renowned jazz singer Thandi Klaasen, she 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—Klaasen makes the music her own with her impassioned singing and dynamic stage presence.
