Freshlyground at Kirstenbosch
The Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concerts presents a live performance by award-winning Afro-fusion band Freshlyground.
Freshlyground’s band members have different backgrounds, including South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Their musical style blends elements of traditional South African music (such as kwela and African folk music), blues, jazz and features of indie rock.
“Freshlyground are true professionals, they have a stage presence telling of the fact that they’ve been playing together for many years, yet somehow exude an air of impromptu fun and lightheartedness.” Read Farah Barry’s review of Freshlyground.
Formed in Cape Town, the band became a national hit with the release of their 2003 debut, Jika Jika.
Freshlyground have toured the world and recorded six increasingly popular albums, as well as a collaboration with pop superstar Shakira for the official song of the 2010 FIFA World Cup. They have just released a new single Banana Republic.
