Lerato is inspired by life and how people relate, moreover, how different cultures and traditions blend in the language of his music. In music, there is no colour or creed; it is a place where all people can connect with each other.
Lerato is also a member of Forest Jam Southern Africa together with South African veterans, Madala Kunene and Mabi Thobejane as well as Swiss, Senegales, Madagasy and Mozambican artists. The intercultural band which seeks to encourage social cohesion toured South Africa and Mozambique in 2016 under the name Forest Jam Groove Orchestra. Since then, Lerato has been performing with King of Zulu Guitar, Madala Kunene and recently celebrated his 50th anniversary tour in 2018 with Mabi Thobejane, Paki Peloeole, Matthias Abächerli, Ngoako Manamela and Themba Mokoena.
Lerato is a patron of House of Kuumba, visionary, conceptualist, archivist, music stylist, and founding band member of Urban Village.
