Their lead singer, Zolani Mahola, inspires with her charisma and enigmatic performances and their performance of “Waka Waka (This Time For Africa)” at the 2001 FIFA World Cup helped cinch their claim to fame, giving them coveted international exposure.

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.

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.

Freshlyground recently released, ‘Take Me To The Dance‘ on iTunes.  To learn more about them, visit their official website and become a fan on Facebook.
