Since their formation in Valencia in 2012, original fusion project Solana have been enchanting listeners with their rhythmically complex and harmonically rich sound inspired by folk traditions from around the world.

“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”.
