Kenya’s award winning band Sauti Sol have released their self titled EP produced by South African Rapper/Producer Spoek Mathambo. With two extremely successful albums, Mwanzo (2008) and Sol Filosofia (2011), Sauti Sol has embarked on an exciting mission–to embrace their artistic versatility and blend their signature harmonies with the futuristic sounds of avant-garde South African rapper/producer Spoek Mathambo.
For months in between Johannesburg and Nairobi, in studios and through emails / Skype, Sauti Sol worked tirelessly with Spoek and his team. The end result is the much-anticipated edgy EP, whose diverse sounds / up-beat tempo reflects on the band’s mission to break musical stereotypes and borders.
Starting today, you can listen/download ‘Sauti Sol’ via http://penya.bandcamp.com/. In preparation for the big launch in Nairobi, Sauti Sol is also organizing a special trial EP launch at the MC theatre in Amsterdam.
Sauti Sol, always making Kenya proud.
Sidebar: My favourite off this EP thus far would have to be “Slow”. The track features Dela and Spoek Mathambo.
…have this as why they called themselves The Muffinz:
“We wanted a name that would be remembered, something catchy but a name that people would want to find out more about. Plus, we all come from different backgrounds musically and so we all bring different ingredients - as in the ingredients in a muffin.”
