On her new album, 33 1/3, she finds a different kind of voice — one that's eager to participate in a national dialogue.

Record A Song This Weekend!

While we may not agree as to whether new recording technology makes music better or worse (see Douglas Wolk's fantastic essay), I think we'd all be willing to admit that technology has made making music a whole lot easier, cheaper and more accessible.

The members of Sauti Sol rehearse in a cramped recording studio above a chapati restaurant off a noisy highway in Nairobi.
