Vusi Mahlasela

St. Lawrence Centre

Known simply as “The Voice” in his home country of South Africa, Singer-Songwriter and Poet-Activist, Vusi Mahlasela has launched a special new project honoring the musical traditions born in Apartheid townships.

Inspired by his early musical experiences listening to mbaqanga, kwela, and marabi , Vusi will be performing the music of Dorothy Masuka, Brenda Fassie, Miriam Makeba, Hugh Masekela, and more in a new program he calls Township. Last seen in Toronto in 2015 performing with Hugh Maskela, Vusi’s new solo concert will bring his unique blend of traditional African music, soul and blues, while his music showcases his powerful vocals and poetic lyrics.

Joining Vusi is Mongezi Ntaka on guitar.
