Lorraine Klaasen comes from South African musical royalty. The daughter of legendary performer and Nelson Mandela ’s favorite jazz singer, Thandie Klaasen, Lorraine has been described as one of few South African artists who preserve Township music .

And now Lorraine is back with her latest release Nouvelle Journée . Once again working with guitarist and producer Mongezi Ntaka – also on board for the project are Congolese drummer Noel Mpiaza and Haitian musician Medad Ernest contributing his jazz and gospel groove on the accordion and keyboards. Assane Seck, the most in-demand Senegalese artist in Montréal, brothers André and Ross Whitman (of the famed West Indian soca band Jab Jab) as well as Québec double-bassist Cédric Dind-Lavoie, who has become a fixture on the local world music scene. And just to add a little extra dynamite to the mix, an irrepressible trio of young black choral singers.
