The popular Kenyan band, Sauti Sol, joined forces with South African rapper-cum-producer Spoek Mathambo for their online EP release last week. The self-titled album brings Mathambo’s ecletic and futurism sensibilities with the smooth sounds of the the four bandmembers, Bien-Aime Baraza, Willis Chimano, Delvin Mudigi and Polycarp Otieno.
EP was a true transcontinental effort, coming together between Nairobi and Johannesburg in studio and over email and Skype. Oh, and Mathambo does make an appearance on the EP, in Case you were wondering!
Look out for an AfriPOP! exclusive from their trial EP launch at the MC theater in Amsterdam in early July.
