Freshlyground formed in early 2002, and is made up of seven talented and diverse musicians
from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Fronted by the diminutive but dynamic Zolani
Mahola, the band exudes a live performance energy that has been the bedrock of their success.
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. Although hailing from diverse backgrounds, between
them the bandʼs members weave a musical magic that is highly infectious and undeniably groovy.
