RELEASED: 7TH JULY 2008
Out of the terrible dark days of apartheid has come music that celebrates life and the strong human spirit. This band would have been absolutely impossible ten or fifteen years ago. It was illegal for black and white people to engage in almost any enterprise together under the former cruel regime in South Africa's government. Freshlyground's music effortlessly crosses many borders - musical, social and geographical.
Nomvula blends African roots with irresistibly catchy pop melodies. And Zolani Mahola's swooping vocals makes their African-rooted pop universal.
