Tribute to Miriam Makeba featuring Lorraine Klaasen
February 23, 2013 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm$20
Batuki Music Society celebrates Black History Month with a “Tribute to Miriam Makeba” featuring Lorraine Klaasen.
Lorraine Klaasen, performer extraordinaire, is the daughter of legendary South African singer Tandi Klaasen, one of Nelson Mandela’s favorite singers and an indisputable South African legend. Lorraine is one of the few South African artists who have preserved the classic distinctive sound to come out of South Africa.
Her latest CD “A Tribute To Miriam Makeba” realeased in September of 2012, is a fitting acknowledgment to the legendary songstress. Hailed as Mama Africa, she helped bring African music to a global audience in the ’60s.
In a fitting homage, Lorraine Klaasen and her band do Auntie Miriam justice with energetic and heartfelt renditions of classic and folk songs, including those that Miriam Makeba brought to the masses and Lorraine’s compositions inspired by the lady herself.
Tickets are $20 advance purcahse or $25 at the door. To purchase advance tickets online please visit www.batukimusic.com
