Building service for Kafka to push data into Salesforce

Does anyone know how to build a service which allows Kafka to push data into Salesforce?
Or maybe a service where Salesforce listens to Kafka changes via api and creates a record in one or more objects?
Any help is appreciated.

I believe this can be possible with the Change data capture in salesforce. 
This involves posting a message in Message Bus which an external system is listening.

If this information helps, please mark the answer as best. Thank you

Hi Swetha,

I believe my requirement is reverse.
Change Data Capture would kick in when there is change in a record, within SF.
Here Kafka will be publishing changes and SF needs to get that data from Kafka.
So Change Data Capture wouldn't work as SF will never know a record has been updated.
Let me know if I am mistaken somewhere.
