Performances by Sauti Sol, Michael Ongaro, Yunasi & Tumi
Sauti Sol will be performing their just released album, ‘Sauti Sol’ for the first time. The album is an experimental work in which Sauti Sol has embarked on an exciting mission – to embrace their artistic versatility and blend their signature harmonies with the futuristic sounds of avant-garde South African rapper/producer Spoek Mathambo. The end result of this much-anticipated collaboration reflects the band’s mission to break (African) musical stereotypes and borders.
In 2004, Yunasi developed a unique East African music style called Sesube which is a combination of Sega, Isukuti, and Benga. It takes sounds and inspirations, cultural styles and languages from local Kenyan communities, and fuses those sounds with a European component. This is achieved by playing a variety of instruments, both traditional and modern.
Since the formation of the group, they have performed at festivals like Sauti za Busara, Bluesfest and Festhorn and played shows in Kenya, France, Germany, Belgium, Mayotte, Djibouti, Tanzania, Australia, Thailand and London. Furthermore, Yunasi won the 2004 Kisima Award for Best Afro-Fusion Band in Kenya, scooped the prize at the prestigious US International Songwriting Contest in 2006, and achieved the 2nd place in the World of Music Awards (WOMA) 2008.
On this evening, Yunasi will present some of their latest songs that will be featured on their upcoming album, both in an acoustic and a more energetic set.
