One of the most acclaimed and successful bands to emerge from South Africa, Freshlyground blends the infectious kwela style and musical traditions from Zimbabwe and Mozambique with elements of pop, jazz, blue and indie rock.
In 2003, the band released their first album “Jika Jika” and a year later released their second studio album, “Nomvula” with the popular track, “Doo Be Doo” which found instant success. It went on to become the most played song in South Africa in 2005. The other singles, “I’d Like,” “Zithande,” “Things Have Changed” and the title track of the album, “Nomvula” followed the success of “Doo Be Doo”.
Freshlyground’s accolades include several SAMA Awards, a MTV Europe Award, Channel O Awards and Metro FM Awards for Best African Pop Album and Best Group.
Serrotone was born when vocalist-songwriter Pete Guthrie (Spoonfeedas) teamed up with James Robertson and talented drummer and close friend Billy Kruger, to create an epic acoustic rock collaboration. Between Guthrie and Robertson they have been instrumental in writing and performing over 10 charting singles, including a couple of number ones and a handful of Top 10s on local radio.
A hugely special feature with Serrotone has become the regular inclusion of Nick Ames, who is certainly one of the finest trumpet players in South Africa. The group has rapidly become sought after, with a series of sold-out shows within their first year of performing.
