“Unlike so many Cape Town bands, Freshlyground have managed to win more than a
mere cult following…It’s about the creative sparks that fly when cultures co-exist and
collide…It’s precisely this unpretentious blend of Mahola’s classy multi-lingual vocals soars,
Hawke’s buoyant bass jams,Turest-Swartz’s pan african textures, and Simon Attwell and
Smith’s shimmering mbira-violin shades that make for an effervescent Afro-pop recipe that
transcends any merely “eclectic” fusion.”
