Sauti Sol teaches you how to ‘Lipala’

I’ve always found it hard to distinguish dance from music. Could it be because music is the soul speaking while dancing is the body expressing what the soul feels?


A dancer will listen to a song and express it depending on how it makes him/her feel and in turn the one watching will perceive both the expression and sound as one.

Well Sauti Sol recently released a new song “Sura Yako”, and what followed next will jolt you off your uptight schedules into a moment of seemingly infinite euphoria!

The four man band headed to the Sarakasi Dome and together with the Sarakasi dancers collaborated to make a new dance, ‘Lipala’!

“We wanted the dance for the song to be authentically Kenyan, so since we are Luhya, we went for “Lipala” which is a luhya dance itself.” Sauti Sol shared.

Not to blow anything out of proportion, but this video is actually what heaven should be like! The happy faces, the energetic “out of the blue” moves, and the general vibe one gets from the song is just on a dimension we are yet to discover.

Ladies, the “Four Musketeers” are almost naked this time but it will be enough to feed your eyes equally as it did during the ‘Nishike’ era. On the other hand, anyone with two left feet will forget that fact for split second and find themselves dancing on impulse! Well, atleast that’s what I did.

It is said that one move can change the world and set an entire generation free. ‘Lipala’ is that move!
