Coffee Anyone-South African Band Freshly Ground

 A few years ago at the end of the World Cup ceremony a band that goes by FreshlyGround  played the final set. The South African band preformed a special gig, marking South Africa's acceptance of the 2010 world cup.
...and then I never heard the band again-until two days ago when NPR flashed a clip of their music.

From Wiki:
Freshlyground is a South African Afro-fusion band that was formed in Cape Town in 2002. The band members are from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. Stylistically, Freshlyground incorporates elements of traditional South African music (such as kwela and African folk), blues and jazz, as well as features of indie rock. The lead singer is Zolani Mahola whose distinctive voice contributes much to the band's unique sound.
