"Rhumba Japani" is a celebratory, trap-inspired single with jazzy live instrumentation.

Sauti Sol takes fans on a pop art experience with the jovial and celebratory music video, with visuals lending from the sonic experience of the single.

“There's a Congolese band called Rhumba Japan. We used to go watch them play at a pub in Nairobi after our practice to avoid rush hour bus fare, [that way it was affordable to go home later]. The jam is an ode to them and the significance of those times in our journey,"  explains Sauti Sol.

The music video’s release comes off the back of the the award winning group celebrating the one-year anniversary since the release of their fifth studio album 'Midnight Train'.
