Win tickets to see Freshlyground during Barnyard tour

Freshlyground is on their way to Gauteng for three exclusive shows.

The mini Barnyard tour will kick off on March 29, in Pretoria, and Freshlyground will appear on stage at the Barnyard Theatre, Emperors Palace on March 30, at 8pm.

The South African Afro-fusion band, formed in early 2002, is made up of seven talented musicians from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe.

Fronted by the dynamic Zolani Mahola, the band exudes a live performance energy which has been the bedrock of their success.

The experienced rhythm section of Peter Cohen (drums) and Josh Hawks (bass) is complimented by guitarist Julio Sigauque, keyboardist Seredeal Scheepers, Simon Attwell (flute, mbira, sax and harmonica) and violinist Kyla Rose Smith.

Some of Freshlyground’s major successes were Doo Be Doo, I’d Like, Zithande, Things Have Changed and the title track of the album Nomvula.

In an exclusive interview, Mahola told the Advertiser that a performance at a Barnyard Theatre is always something special.

“It’s a bit more casual than any other performance. The theatre vibe is very special to us,” said Mahola.

“There is less of a wall between the stage and the audience, so people are more accessible. It creates the perfect atmosphere for the crowd to interact with us, and that we enjoy.”

According to Mahola, people can look forward to having the best time possible with Freshlyground at the Barnyard.

“The crowd might hear some of our songs they’ve never heard before. We will also perform new songs we haven’t released yet.”

At the moment, the members of Freshlyground are preparing for a few tours in Africa, as well as a North American tour.

They are also working on some new material.
