Sauti Sol is an award-winning Kenyan afro pop group whose fresh, pioneering sound has launched them to the forefront of Africa’s musical consciousness. Bien-Aime Baraza, Willis Austin Chimano, Polycarp Otieno, and Savara Mudigi mix their soulful voices with vocal harmonies, guitar riffs and drum rhythm to blend warm, resonant pop with traditional Kenyan influences.
The band has enjoyed wildly successful tours across Africa, topped Kenyan charts, and gained international acclaim with shows in Europe and the United States.
In March 2011, the band performed at the South by Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) in Austin, Texas and then returned again in 2012. That year they also performed at the Festival Sur le Niger in Mali and at the Kalorvy Vary International Film Festival and Colors of Ostrava 2012, Czech Republic’s biggest music festival. Sauti Sol also signed with Kenya’s Niko Na Safaricom Live Tour that year.
They have performed for Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, United States President Barack Obama, and United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
