Recognize this tune?
If so, chances are you're a futbol fan who kept up with the 2010 World Cup...or a Shakira fan. (Fingers crossed it's the former because this is the first AND last time Shakira will appear on this site. Mark our words.)
If you were able to make it until two minutes into the video, you know that more than just Shakira's shaking hips went into the making of that song. Freshlyground, a seven-piece Afro-fusion band hailing form South Africa, Mozambique, and Zimbabwe accompanied the Colombian pop songstress on the anthem. Performing on the World Cup stage introduced Freshlyground, who had already made a name for themselves in and around South Africa, to a worldwide audience eager to hear more of the band's dynamic sound. Check out the title track from their most recent release, Take Me to the Dance:
