Artist: Sauti Sol
The multi-talented Sauti Sol is like nothing you have ever experienced before. The African acoustic band consists of 4 members; Bien-Aime Baraza, Willis Chimano, Delvin Mudigi and Polycarp Otieno who met in high school and originally started as an accapella group. When they cleared their O-levels in the year 2005 they decided to take up music professionally.
The band is inspired by the choices, consequences and challenges that the Kenyan youth face and the need to revamp the music industry with a different unique sound that cuts across all age groups. Musically, they are inspired by Fadhili Williams, Daudi Kabaka and other established African artists such as Salif Keita and Lokua Kanza.
Currently the band are busy promoting the debut album “Mwanzo” produced by Wawesh under the Kenyan “Penya Africa” Label.
The album is a fusion of African sound with and urban feel; most of the songs are extremely well received when performed live among Sauti’s continuously growing fan-base!
The debut album of Sauti Sol can be found in most bigger outlets such as Nakumatt & Uchumi in Kenya.
