Sauti Sol, the premier East African boy band, has signed with Universal Music Africa, a sub division of Universal Music Group.
This will be the first major label deal signed by the band, made up of four musicians (Polycarp Otieno, Savara Mudigi, Willis Chimano and Bien-Aimé Baraza).
Sauti Sol will be looking to break into the international market following this deal. Already, their discography is stacked with timeless gems such as “Melanin” (featuring Patoranking) and “Girls Next Door” feat Tiwa Savage.
Their music is an amalgam of traditional African music, Kenyan folk, R & B, and Afro Pop. They have four albums to their credit with the most recent being Afrikan Sauce, their 2019-released collaboration-heavy project.
