Karen Zoid is known to set any stage alight with her magnificent voice and energetic guitar solos; moving between emotionally charged lyrics and a witty sense of humor. Zoid`s lyrics speak of the world we live in. She’s rarely diplomatic and inclined to tell it as it is. This was apparent when she first magically appeared out of nowhere 16 years ago with ‘Afrikaners is Plesierig’. Maybe she gets our collective ear by telling us things we don’t want to know – but demand to hear. Ultimately it is always Truth that shines through her critically acclaimed body of work.

Her music has, without a doubt, shaped our culture and she has dominated the airwaves for the past decade. Read more KAREN ZOID LIVE AT ARTSCAPE THEATRE, CAPE TOWN.
