Multi Grammy Award winner Lauryn Hill has been confirmed to perform at this year’s Cape Town International Jazz Festival. Her performance will take place on Saturday March 31 at the famous Kippies stage.
“We are extremely excited about the addition of Ms. Lauryn Hill. She is an exceptional artist and festival goers can expect a sensational show. She completes a line-up of world class acts that audiences have come expect from the festival,” says Rashid Lombard, espAfrika CEO.“Both public tickets and corporate hospitality tickets are completely sold out. Non -ticket holders are urged not to try their luck at the festival gates as there will be no tickets available,” says Lombard.
Hill established her reputation as a member of the Fugees. In 1998 she launched her solo career with the release of the commercially successful and critically acclaimed album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’. The recording earned Hill 5 Grammy Awards including Album of the Year and Best New Artist.
After several years out of the spotlight, Hill returned to live music in 2011. She has toured extensively since, including performances at Coachella Valley Music Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and Rock The Bells. In February 2012 Hill performed a new song, titled ‘Fearless Vampire Killer’, during a sold out performance at the Warner Theatre in Washington DC.
