Media Release:  Wednesday December 2, 2009


The Raggamuffin Music Festival is pleased to announce

MS. LAURYN HILL will join the 2010 bill. 


Ms. Lauryn Hill, an American recording artist, musician, producer and actress

established her reputation in the hip-hop world as the lone female member of the

Fugees. She sang at Harlem's Apollo Theater at age thirteen and soon after met

Prakazrel ‘Pras’ Michel and his cousin, Wyclef Jean and the three formed the

Fugees. 


In 1996 the group released their second album, which Ms. Hill co-wrote and co-

produced. The Score sold over 18 million copies, making the Fugees the biggest-

selling rap group of all time and winning them two Grammy Awards (Best Rap

Album and Best R&B Performance by a duo or group). 


A few years later after meeting her long-term partner, Rohan Marley son of Bob

Marley, Ms Hill launched her solo career and released the commercially successful

and critically acclaimed album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. The recording

earned her five Grammy Awards and praise from industry heavyweights such as

Public Enemy's Chuck D who admiringly described her as "sunlight" and a "Bob

Marley (of the) 21st Century”. 


Ms. Lauryn Hill will perform at Raggamuffin with SLY & ROBBIE
