[LISTEN] Beat the lockdown blues with Zolani's live Instagram gigs (and collab!)
Acclaimed local singer Zolani Mahola went solo last year after 17 years with award-winning band Freshlyground.
And now she's helping South Africans and in fact people around the world, to ease back from the stress of Covid-19 lockdowns.
The musician does live sessions on Instagram at 6 pm every evening bar Sundays, when she says she usually takes a break for a day of rest and family.
Her initiative is a way to provide "a space of calm and connection" for music lovers everywhere.
What's been really cool about it is that we do get to connect on a worldwide basis just in those 30/45 minutes, to leave our fears and our worries behind and just enjoy some music and take a breath.Zolani Mahola, Musician
It's not all altruistic, it's also to keep myself from going crazy!Zolani Mahola, Musician
