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.
Zoid also has a prominent presence in primetime television with her weekly talk show Republiek van Zoid Afrika on kykNET. She is also a judge in MNET`s The Voice. She has received numerous music and television awards and has had more than 32 number one hit singles on iTunes. Zoid has shared the stage with the likes of Annie Lennox, John Mayer and Metallica and, according to an article in TIME Magazine a few years ago, she is an icon in the South African music scene.
The good news is that Zoid and her band will be performing the Artscape Theatre in Cape Town on 20 June 2018. Zoid and her band will have you on the edge of your seat. It’s a show unlike any other – a must see! Zoid says: “I am doing three big shows in June. The Artscape show is the only one in Cape Town. People attending can expect a long show with an interval. For my recent concert in Johannesburg, we had some surprises for the audience: Mielie Senekal from the Republiek Zoid Afrika show made an appearance on stage and Jack Daniels printed limited edition TShirts for the event. We are also planning some surprises for Cape Town to show fans how much we appreciate them.”
