Freshlyground goes green

2009-04-01 18:06
Hoedspruit - South African music sensation Freshlyground will perform at the Sustainable Living festival in Hoedspruit, Limpopo.

The festival, which will run from April 24 to 26, will attempt to encourage everyone to reduce their carbon footprint by being aware of how much electricity and fuel they consume.

"It's going to be a great festival with a great line up for the whole weekend," said Heidi Lee Smith, editor of one of the festival sponsors, the Kruger to Canyons newspaper.

Freshlyground will perform as part of a fundraising event on April 25 to raise money for green programmes like the Kruger to Canyons Education Trust.

The festival will also include agriculture and tourism symposiums.

Talented and diverse musicians

"There will also be a symposium on alternative building methods to help people build sustainable eco-friendly buildings," said Smith.

The festival is a project of the Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region, which incorporates communities living between the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon who have agreed to behave responsibility toward their environment.

The festival will be held at the Southern Cross School in the Raptor's View Wildlife Estate in Hoedspruit.

Freshlyground has taken South Africa by storm since it was formed in early 2002 with hits like Doo Be Doo and Pot Belly.

Its members include seven talented and diverse musicians from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. The lead singer is the tiny, but feisty Zolani Mahola.
