SOUTH AFRICAN GIRL BAND
KICK OFF FOR WORLD CUP
WITH HELP FROM SONGLINK!

-

Newly formed South African trio La VuVuZeLa are following the release of their first of two No. 1 chart-topping singles "Be Mine Tonight" and "5 More Minutes" with their debut album, "In Stereo", which also contains a new World Cup inspired track. Almost the entire album was put together as a consequence of placing leads in SongLink tipsheet, with contributions from our worldwide subscribers such as Charlie Mason, Bryan Steele (USA), Phil Ogden, Stephen Massa (UK) and publishers DSign Music (Norway), Chrysalis Music and Universal Sweden among others. The World Cup track titled "Play To Win" will be released in April to South African radio and is hopefully set to follow in the footsteps of their previous hits. La VuVuZeLa was formed just six months ago after they were discovered by Unie Moller, head of UK label Sexy Records.

Moller first met lead singer Tarryn Lamb in Cape Town a two years ago while he was scouting for talent. When he called her in July 2009 with the idea of starting an all-girl band, she jumped at the chance. With Moller working from the UK and Tarryn in Cape Town, Moller placed an ad on Gumtree to find vocalists and dancers to form the group, and in SongLink to find the songs. The song response was fantastic, Moller having used SongLink before for other projects, while dancers Tamsyn and Sam were also recruited via Gumtree and La VuVuZela was born on August 23rd 2009. Since then the girls have put together their first single, 'Be Mine Tonight' in record time with the help of top international song writers and producers such as Jack D. Elliot - who has worked with Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake. Their debut single "Be Mine Tonight" went to No. 1 on the Nokia Take 40 SA charts and went on to become the chart's 10th most popular record on their yearly top 100 chart. They also hit number one on Zane Derbyshire's HIGHVELD & KFM's Homebrew Top 10 Charts and since the release of their first album a second single titled "5 More Minutes" has also gone to No. 1 on the Nokia take 40 chart. In November last year, Lavuvuzela received airplay on commercial, community and university radio stations around both South Africa and Europe. They have also performed on local TV shows, 'Hectic Nine-9' on ETV and 'What's On' on Cape Town TV. Each of the girls has a musical background dating back to primary school. Tarryn and Sam are both recent graduates from the Waterfront Theatre School and Tamsyn has trained and performed with local dance company Afrika Ablaze.

"In Stereo", the key song after which the album is named has been remixed by one of Germany's hottest DJ's, DJ Falk, who has a daily show on Sunshine Live Radio (www.sunshine-live.de) in Germany. This remixed version of "In Stereo" has already become the Record of the Week on Sunshine-Live radio and will be promoted in Germany through Tiger Records who were voted German dance label of the year for 2009. La VuVuZeLa's new single, "Play To Win", will be released shortly in preparation for the Soccer World Cup which is due for release in April 2010 by Gallo Records/Sexy Records in amalgamation with the South African Football Association. LaVuvuzela have just finished a second European project as the featured vocalists with the highly successful European team known as "Hard Soul" with a song titled "Give A Little Love" set for release in Europe during April 2010. Within six months of their conception, LaVuVuZeLa have also been nominated for the South Africa Music Awards [SAMA] in the Best Pop Album Category with their album.
