Sauti Sol Announce American Concerts

Kenyan afro-pop outfit Sauti Sol are headed to the United States for five shows in Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Washington, DC.

Kenyan afro-pop outfit Sauti Sol have announced a string of American dates in support of their upcoming Live And Die In Afrika LP, due later this year. The 5-stop mini-tour will see the Nairobi quartet playing concerts across the continental United Sates with stops in Minneapolis, Dallas, Atlanta, Seattle and Washington, DC. Sauti Sol's third studio album Live And Die In Afrika, the follow-up to their 2012 Spoek Mathambo-produced EP, is still under production but we know that it'll include the steamy slow jam "Nishike" (and its controversial music video), as well as the Lipala dance single "Sura Yako." Watch the visuals for Sauti Sol's latest Live And Die In Afrika single "Nerea," featuring Amos & Josh below and check out their American concert dates underneath.
