Freshlyground + Federator No. 1

March 17 2013
967 Comm Ave, Boston, MA   (view map)

Filed under: afro-fusion, african, jazz, south african, pop

Freshlyground’s home base is South Africa, but this septet of musicians — from that country as well as Mozambique and Zimbabwe — are not playing your daddy’s township jive. With charismatic lead singer Zolani Mahola, Freshlyground deploy traditional and acoustic instruments, like mbira and violin, as well as electric guitars and bass to create vibrant, hooky, cosmopolitan dance pop. Extra cred: their latest album, Take Me to the Dance (Womusic), was produced by Los Lobos’s Steve Berlin.
