the legacy stories

Zolani Mahola

A true South African storyteller, Zolani Mahola, is a well-respected and loved musician who not only unites people through her musical abilities but through her active involvement in projects surrounding social change. Mahola is best known for her band Freshlyground which has become a household name and one of South Africa’s most acclaimed and successful bands. As an artist, she explores themes of identity and belonging, both for herself and to share the message that, while we are all connected and have so much in common, “our stories are all unique and we have to be curious about our own and each other’s stories, to find the reason we were put on this planet and to be our full expression.” Mahola is passionate about sharing her experience for the good of her community and is expanding her portfolio to include inspirational talks – she is an icon for musicians seeking to combine social change with the power of music.
