Greetings from Sauti Sol!, Early this morning we received a notification from Sauti Sol Band telling us to let you know “Kaani mkao wa kula”.
Sauti Sol, a Kenyan afro-pop band formed in Nairobi, Kenya by vocalists Bien-Aimé Baraza, Willis Chimano and Savara Mudigi in 2005.
Initially an a cappella group, guitarist Polycarp Otieno joined before they named themselves Sauti Sol.
Sauti Sol released their debut studio album Mwanzo on 1 November 2008.
The award-winning afro-pop band has a lot of successful tours in Africa and Europe, topped Kenyan charts, and gained international attention with shows in Europe and the US, as well as television appearances and various accolades and nominations.
After releasing Brighter Days Featuring Soweto Gospel Choir, few weeks ago, Sauti Band has announced to release another song titled “Insecure” from their new album Midnight Train Friday 22 May 200.
Midnight Train album will be released on 5 June 2020. This is the group’s first major-label record – with Universal Music Africa.
Midnight Train is a wholesome album and a milestone release for the group. It is inspirational and uplifting and offers much needed social commentary while not losing its global appeal.
‘There is a lot of maturity in the album,’ states Polycarp.
‘We have come of age and we express how people should perceive us freely after 11 years as professional singers. Every song speaks to an issue that is relatable to everyone.’
