BOOK A CONCERT WITH FRESHLYGROUND

________________________________________________________________________________
Freshlyground copyright GRIOT GmbH , Wulf v. GaudeckerFreshlyground was formed in early 2002 in Cape Town. Fronted by the exceptional singer and dynamic performer Zolani Mahola, the band exudes a live performance energy that has been the bedrock of their success.

Freshylground became South Africa´s most popular band with the release of ‘Doo Be Doo’ - the most played song in the year of 2005. The major success of ‘Doo Be Doo’ from their album "Nomvula" was followed by the singles ‘I’d Like’, ‘Zithande’, ‘Things Have Changed’ and the title track of the album ‘Nomvula’. The album sold 300 000 units in South Africa alone - earning it multi-platinum status.
Too many great things happened afterwards to mention them all ... like when Freshlyground won the MTV Europe Award in the category "Best African Act" in 2006 ... or when they were selected to co-perform in the Official Song for the 2010 World Cup. Entitled ‘ Waka Waka- This Time For Africa” alongside with Colombian superstar, Shakira. 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.

While for us the best news are: Freshlyground released a new album entitled "Freshlyground" which has a strong South African taste and gives proof of their great song writing qualities. This might be the best album they ever released.
We can´t offer a video going along with the new release yet but invite you to listen to them on our website:
