Since their formation in Valencia in 2012, original fusion project Solana have been enchanting listeners with their rhythmically complex and harmonically rich music inspired by folk traditions from around the world. Solana’s sound is lead by flutes, violin, accordion and Spanish guitar, and takes influence from such diverse greats as Tigran Hamasyan, Kíla, Paco de Lucía and Dhafer Youssef. Their latest release CAMINO received the following praise:
“Their music ranges boldly from klezmer melodies, tingling tango, exuberant Irish folk and swinging jazz to pumping reggae and lilting Latin […] thoroughly invigorating” — Songlines
“A fervent and fertile form of world fusion” — Shire Folk
“They make my spice shelf look boring… an accomplished and colourful album” — Folk Radio UK
When not playing music, the members of Solana can be found making chutney, cycling long distances, and correcting people who mispronounce “paella”.
