This is how Sauti Sol in their own words described the ‘Live and Die in Afrika’ album
“Live and Die in Afrika is Sauti Sol’s third studio album. The 15-track album is the group’s first self-produced album touted to have birthed the hit singles: Sura Yako, Isabella, Nishike, Shake Yo Bam Bam and Still the One. The album is a celebration of the African continent coming of age, flaunting the richness in cultural diversity, talent and resources.
And now we finally have a generation that fully believes in this continent and her great potential. African diaspora is on a mission to reconnect with their roots, be it through music or other media. There is a willingness to aspire everything and anything African. “In California, they have been dancing to Sura Yako,” (Barack Obama). They sing and dance to the same tune at a wedding in Moshi, Tanzania. There is a willingness to Live and Die in Afrika. These are the united minds of Africa. Minds that will LIVE AND DIE IN AFRIKA!”
After this, Sauti Sol will be going on a country wide tour to promote the album.The album will be available on iTunes and the hard copy will be supplied on Nakumatt supermarket retail chain
“This was a first for both Sauti Sol and Safaricom, where an album is made available for free for a limited time. The album release will be followed by a countrywide tour where the band will be able to meet and interact with the fans.” Sauti Sol manager, Marek Fuchs said.
