Sauti Sol Team Up with Nyashinski again for Introspective Single ‘Tujiangalie’
Not shy of pushing the envelope, the sixth single off Sauti Sol‘s (long time) upcoming LP, Afrikan Sauce, pulls the breaks on their continental contemporary afro-pop, to take on a more introspective stance.
“We thought about the world right now, and the number of persistent issues plaguing it,” Sauti Sol say in the descriptor. “These things are hardly ever solved, and we are consistently shortchanged. So we considered; how can we address these frustrations? Our first realization was to speak power to the reality that we are living in, hence the title “Tujiangalie.” Self-reflection.
The single, released as an official lyric version with stunning Kenyan life visuals on YouTube, once again features Nyashinski, who co-wrote the song, and is mixed and mastered by MBOKS, with direction by YNOT vs SIR-NARE.
