Freshlyground is made up of seven talented and diverse musicians from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Fronted by dynamic singer Zolani Mahola, the band’s live performances are always injected with so much infectious energy. The accomplished rhythm section consisting of Peter Cohen (drums) and Josh Hawks (bass) is complimented by guitarist Julio Sigauque, keyboardist Seredeal Scheepers, Simon Attwell (flute, mbira, sax and harmonica) as well as violinist Kyla Rose Smith. All seven band members came from very different musical backgrounds and walked various musical paths until they met way back in 2002, when they decided to start grooving along in step with each other, and that’s when musical gem, Freshlyground, was formed!
Fusing traditional and local music styles, balanced with a more international production approach, they have blended together a truly unique musical sound, ever changing and always original.
