Profile:
Freshlyground formed in early 2002 and is made up of seven talented and diverse musicians from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Fronted by the dynamic Zolani Mahola, the band exudes a live performance energy that has been the bedrock of their success. In 2010, with their already gold fourth studio album, ‘Radio Africa’, Freshlyground broadcasted their unique sound, a sound that has turned the seven-piece into one of South Africa’s most treasured acts, to the rest of the continent and the world.

The band put the finishing touches to ‘Radio Africa’ in New York in February 2010 and the band was selected to co-perform in the Official Song for the 2010 World Cup. Entitled ‘ Waka Waka- This Time For Africa” the song is featured on “Listen Up: The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Album™,” and is a collaboration with Colombian superstar, Shakira. Freshlyground performed Waka Waka live at the FIFA Kickoff Concert and the Word Cup Final game between Spain and the Netherlands, which broadcast to over a billion people world wide. To date ‘Waka Waka’ has sold well over 3 million singles and reached number #1 on several charts worldwide. The song is the most successful anthem in the history of the FIFA World Cup and has introduced Freshlyground and their music to a host of new fans across the globe.

The experienced rhythm section of Peter Cohen (drums) & Josh Hawks (bass) is complimented by guitarist Julio Sigauque, keyboardist Seredeal Scheepers, Simon Attwell (flute, mbira, sax and harmonica) and violinist Kyla Rose Smith.
