More information on artists:
Freshlyground is of the most acclaimed and successful bands to emerge from South Africa in recent years. With the enigmatic Zolani Mahola on vocals, this Afro-fusion band blends the infectious kwela style and musical traditions from Zimbabwe and Mozambique with elements of pop, jazz, blues and indie rock.
Anton Goosen is a South African musician and songwriter. He became a pivotal figure in Afrikaans music and is generally regarded as the father of Afrikaans Rock. Goosen is noted for two films for which he wrote music and directed: ‘n Brief vir Simone (1980) and Sing vir die Harlekyn (1980). He also wrote the theme music for Die Laaste Tango (2013), ‘n Pawpaw vir my Darling (2016) and Siembamba (2017).
Piet Botha & Akkedis (as The Lyzyrd Kyngs)
Piet Botha is a South African musician and the frontman of the South African rock band Jack Hammer, which has been an opening act for bands such as ZZ Top. He also performs solo. Akkedis can be dubbed as the stepchildren of South African rock ‘n roll. The infamous Dennis-twins, Arthur and Rudolph, strummed their first chord at the age of 12 after being exposed to everyone from Neil Young to Bob Marley. When Adrian John Graham joined the group, their sound progressed into the timeless rock sound South Africans have known and enjoyed for over two decades. Together, these two musical entities are The Lyzyrd Kyngs, a multi-faceted amalgamation of each band member’s singular talents.
Wendy Oldfield is a South African singer. At the age of nineteen, she formed the rock group The Sweatband, and from 1999 to 2001, she was involved with the band Mondetta. She is the winner of several music awards and currently performs as a solo artist.
Lionel Bastos is one of the most recorded (pop, rock, folk rock, world, jazz, blues, R&B, kwaito, country rock) songwriters in South Africa. Many of his songs have been radio singles. In Luxemburg he had 3 successive number 1’s with songs he wrote and produced for Jimmy Wagner, 1 of which was later on a BMG worldwide released compilation ” We Two Are One” on which he worked with ALAIN NAU,(who used to drum for CHAKA KAHN) KAI HORSTHEMKE and SIPHO MABOYA (ex-JOHNNY CLEGG and REBECCA MOLOPE).
Amy Jones is one of Cape Town`s most promising popular new pop artists. She has had major radio success with her four singles released up to date including “Sunrise”, “Burn”, “Forget the Day”, “You and Me” and “Get a little.”
