Freshlyground shows support and solidarity for cancer survivors
This year internationally acclaimed music band, Freshlyground, has pledged their support of CANSA by giving CANSA rights to use their music in the radio and TV ads to promote CANSA Shavathon. An article in Time Magazine describes them as the personification of the Rainbow Nation – “mixing not only race and gender but also nationality, musical style, language, age and even height…” (Band members are Kyla-Rose Smith (violin), Zolani Mahola (vocals), Shaggy Scheepers (keyboard), Julio Sigauque, guitar), Peter Cohen (drums), Simon Attwell (flute, saxo), Josh Hawks (bass)
The reason why people take part in CANSA Shavathon is to show support and solidarity for cancer survivors. On 20 February 2012 Freshlyground visited the CANSA Cape Town office to show their support for CANSA Shavathon and to meet cancer survivors.
Many thanks to Freshlyground for your wonderful support!
