Audio: Freshly Ground's New Album 'Take Me To The Dance'

Freshly Ground Take Me to the Dance is the South African-based afropop collective's fifth studio album.


After a two-year recording hiatus afro-pop collective, Freshly Ground, are back with their fifth studio album, Take Me to the Dance. Recorded with much sought-after Grammy Award-winning producer and session player, Steve Berlin - an experienced lead-singer Zolani Mahola described as “an absolute dream come true” – the 14-track LP was entirely self-funded. The band also took charge of the marketing and distribution duties; partnering with giant South African retailer, Pick n Pay, for the release of the record. “This album has been such an incredible journey for the band” Zolani says; “the writing process meant that we all had room to express ourselves individually before arriving at the whole”.
