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.
South African supergroup Freshlyground has released the first music video from their new album, the title track "Take Me to the Dance". Directed by Samuel Coleman, the track and video mark a new stylistic direction for the group, which will be touring the US in March. Check out the new video down below.
