Check out Sol y Canto's interview with NPR
We’ve been performing uplifting Latin music with Sol y Canto 25 years, and for 10 years before that with Flor de Caña. Not surprisingly, our daughter Alisa has chosen a musical path as well, and she’s grown into a phenomenal singer/songwriter. The last time she recorded with Sol y Canto, Alisa was a small child, singing with her twin on our 2003 bilingual family release El Doble de Amigos/Twice as Many Friends.
On October 6, 2019 we celebrated Sol y Canto’s 25th anniversary (and our 35th year of performing together) with a concert and live recording at Arlington Street Church in Boston. The show featured the Sol y Canto quintet, Alisa, and special guests. Alisa has been adding her adult voice to the intricate family harmonies for many years, but this is the first opportunity we’ve had to record together as musical equals.
It’s also our first opportunity to record a lot of great new songs we’ve been piling up over the years, both originals (by Brian and Alisa) and creative arrangements of Latin classics. As always, our music carries a strong humanistic message, and it seems more necessary than ever to get it out into the world.
