re-mixes traditional folk music
from his home country of Lesotho
//He uses dance, dub reggae, and rap//
to create a new eclectic sound
which he's performed around the world
(SOUNDBITE) (English) MORENA LERABA SINGER, TEBOHO MOCHAOA, SAYING:
"You know, performing on world stages, playing big festivals in France, in London, and other places. So, it's really, really interesting to see that whole blend working, like to see that whole concoction materializing I'd say."
Teboho performs on stage as Morena Leraba
a character who represents his roots
often narrating traditional stories
over dance beats and electro sounds
(SOUNDBITE) (English) CONCERT GOER, JOEL MAKATA, SAYING:
"I mean, there's a lot of music everywhere. What Morena Leraba does is plug into the space where culture, Basotho culture, sort of meets electronic beats and a more modern sound."
