Sol and The Tribu

Caribbean Vibes & Futuristic Funk

Sol and The Tribu is a group of Cuban musicians who blend traditional Caribbean music and modern technology with a 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.

Sol and The Tribu — “tribu” means tribe — has seven members, but more than 20 musicians and creatives form the Tribu Collective. Together, they curate and produce original material that represents the 305 and its cultural diversity.

The band is led by Sol Ruiz, a Grammy-nominated international recording artist and multi- instrumentalist. Hailing from Miami, Ruiz sings and writes in her native tongue, Spanglish, and has toured in Europe, Canada and the Caribbean. Ruiz was a featured performer in an indie opera developed and produced by the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Beth Morrison Projects.

The band’s most recent EP, Positive Vibration Nation, released in fall 2020, was created during the coronavirus pandemic. Conceptually, it encourages positive thinking and is an uplifting portrait of the band in times of uncertainty. Sol and The Tribu was a recipient of the Arsht Center’s Heart of Art commissioning award for their “Corona Conga Online” video in 2020.
