Teboho Mochaoa, who goes by the artist name Morena Leraba, mixes rock and electronic music forms with the accordian based sotho music famo, who was invented when people from Lesotho worked in South African mines in the 1920s. Similar to most famo musicians, Leraba is from the Mafeteng district in Lesotho. He has however been inspired by a lot of influential genres and artists from the whole of the african continent, giving him confidence to try something similar with his own heritage. He got his debut as a guest artist on the song “Do You Know Lesotho” by The Freerangers. Since then, Leraba has recorded prolifically both as a solo artist and collaborator.
