Sauti, meaning both "sound" and "voice" in Swahili, somehow encapsulates the essence of this piece inspired by field recordings carried out in Kenya in 2012. The work combines community radio recordings and soundscapes of the city of Mombasa with synthesized textures and rhythmic patterns extracted from traditional West African music. The piece was composed at the Arts and Technology Lab of Universidad Austral in Valdivia, Chile, was among finalists of the 2021 Musica Nova Competition in Prague and was released in July 2022 as part of a new album by Sargasso records.
