Listen to Sauti Sol's New Album 'Afrikan Sauce'

Featuring collaborations with Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, Vanessa Mdee, Nyashinski and many more.

Sauti Sol have been teasing their album, Afrikan Sauce, for a minute now.

We've already heard standout tracks like "Melanin," featuring Patoranking, "Short & Sweet"โ€”which was one of our Best East African Songs of 2018 selectionsโ€”and "Tujiangalie"alongside Nyashinski.

Well, the Kenyan Afro-pop band's 13-track Afrikan Sauce album is officially out today and features additional collaborations with Tiwa Savage, Burna Boy, Vanessa Mdee, Yemi Alade, Khaligraph Jones, Bebe Cool, Mi Casa, Toofan, Jah Prayzah, and C4 Pedro.

Sauti Sol has called the Afrikan Sauce project an "art and cultural exchange" with big names from across Africa.


When we last spoke to Sauti Sol in an interview, they gave us their reasons and formula for being successful artists living and working in Africa:

"There's no better way, if you dream, believe and work hard enough to be the best in your craft, every way is the best. Africa is the future and the world is now warming up and very receptive to African sounds. It's up to us to sell our authentic African art to the rest of the world."
