Sauti Sol rocked it this Saturday at the Global Citizen Festival in New York City’s Central Park.
The festival garnered much media attention for such great moments as Beyoncé and Eddie Vedder singing Bob Marley’s classic “Redemption Song” before a crowd of more than 60,000 people.
What has not attracted as much media attention was Sauti Sol representing “Africa’s voice and contribution to the [United Nation’s] Global goals for Sustainable Development.” While we never got a chance to sit down with the guys due to their busy schedule, here is a recap of the weekend through their eyes:
Such an honour to have had Chris Martin of @coldplay invite us to New York to play at the Global Citizen Festival. Meeting him and telling him about Kenyan and African music was just amazing! More to come! Cc @savarafrica x @fancy_fingers @theglobalgoals #globalcitizenfestival #centralpark #NYC #TourLife #SolGeneration
