Old Mutual Music in the Gardens Concert Series: Karen Zoid
Sunday 14 August: Pretoria National Botanical Gardens
Sunday 21 August: Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens, JHB.
The release of Karen Zoid`s first solo album (Poles Apart) 10 years ago
fired the imagination of both critics and the public when she burst on the
scene with the song Afrikaners is plesierig. The song became iconic and
Karen Zoid became South Africas queen of rock.
Over the past 10 years Zoids albums achieved gold status, she received a
SAMA for Best Female Artist, won numerous other awards and performed with
international artists like John Mayer, Annie Lennox, Metallica and Hothouse
Flowers. TIME Magazine and US News & World Report highlighted her role as an
icon in South-African music. First year students at Universities study her
writing as part of their academic modules.
Fans were introduced to songs like Beautiful, Ons soek rock & roll and
Verandering. In 2005 Small Room became one of the biggest songs being play
listed on radio. Aeroplane Jane became the most requested song over the past
three years on radio.
5 solo-abums and 10 years later, the upcoming shows at the Old Mutual Music
in the Gardens Concert series is part of a national AFRIKANERS IS PLESIERIG
tour to celebrate a decade in the music industry. Karen Zoid will be
performing at the Botanical Gardens in Pretoria on Sunday 14 August and at
the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens on Sunday 21 August.
