Sol + The Tribu is a group of Cuban musicians that blends traditional Caribbean music and modern technology with a distinct Miami twist. As ambassadors of The New Miami Sound, they pride themselves on what makes Miami “The Magic City” with its blend of Caribbean influences and American swamp funk. Their album Miami 3050 is a conceptual album, based on the story of three superheroes that come from the year 3050 to the present-day to save the future of music by preserving its roots.
With their storyline, the purpose is to preserve Caribbean cultural identity and Miami history through music and visual art that promotes our uniqueness. Their most recent EP, Positive Vibration Nation, released in Fall 2020, was created during the Corona Virus quarantine. It features 6 tracks created during the quarantine of the Corona Virus. Conceptually, it encourages positive thinking and is an uplifting portrait of the band in times of uncertainty.
