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 Africa’s queen of rock.

Over the past 10 years Zoid’s 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.
