"Sauti Sol"

Uptoyoutoo and its Kenyan studio/label Penya are proud to present the debut album by Sauti Sol, a vibrant quartet of gifted young musicians.

Bien-Aime Baraza, Willis Chimano, Delvin Mudigi and Polycarp Otieno met in high school and originally started as an accapella group. In 2005, after clearing their O-levels, they decided to take up music professionally. Musically, their inspiration comes from the music of Fadhili Williams, Daudi Kabaka and other established African artists such as Salif Keita and Lokua Kanza.

Following the footsteps of previous Uptoyoutoo releases, “Mwanzo” is yet another fulfilling musical journey with the Nairobi Eastlands as its starting point. The band is influenced by the choices, consequences and challenges that the Kenyan youth face and the need to revamp the music industry with a different sound that cuts across all age groups. “Mwanzo” transmits all of this: beautiful vocal harmonies, elegant guitar chords, catchy choruses, blended in an African/Urban fusion that give it a unique feel.

As a performing band, Sauti Sol had their first show at the Nairobi Alliance Francaise and over the last 3 years that has been their haven. In 2006 they were finalists of the Spotlight on Kenyan Music and currently more shows are being planned as the bands fan base expands on a daily basis, proving that Sauti Sol are here to leave their mark.

"HFM Reviews"

MWANZO - Sauti Sol

Mature lyrics form up this 14 track album that is laced with great guitar work and a neo-soul sound that is simply phenomenal. The quartet of Polycarp, Chimano, Delvin and Baraza might probably be the band to look out for this year. A rich afro soul feel, raw energy and a dash of John Legend, make up the musical cocktail that is Mwanzo..

Still working on that hot first release.
