Sauti Sol Release Their Latest Album 'Live And Die In Afrika'

Kenyan afro-pop band Sauti Sol share their new album 'Live and Die in Afrika,' along with the music video for its title track.


Kenyan quartet Sauti Sol return with the release of their long-awaited album Live and Die in Afrika, along with a new music video for the record’s title track. The group’s third album features a string of infectious afro-pop tunes including dance hits “Sura Yako” and “Shake Yo Bam Bam,” as well as the delicate love ballad “Isabella.”

The band takes it to Nairobi in the new visuals for “Live and Die in Afrika,” which follows Sauti Sol as they profess their love for Africa while visiting the market and performing on a rooftop overlooking the city. As the video goes on, the group can be seen holding a lively concert for a crowd of fans while the sun goes down. “There’s no place I’d rather be,” they sing, as the camera pans over the city’s lush scenery and vibrant residents.
