Freshlyground bass player & singer Josh Hawks has teamed up with long time Johnny Clegg Band drummer Barry Van Zyl to form an exciting new act. Together with Chris Bakalanga from Kinshasa ( guitar ), James Kibby from Cape Town ( guitar ) and violinist extraordinaire Galina Juritz they make up the brand new Josh Hawks Band. Josh & Barry have spent more than a decade performing at the highest international level, around the globe on a yearly basis.
The style and focus runs from Pan African world beats right through to Punk, Rock and classic ‘Beatles rock and roll’. The Josh Hawks Band is the culmination of this pedigree, packaged in the form of a vibrant and proudly South African quintet!
