“Boston’s sublime ambassadors of Pan-Latin music”-The Boston Globe
Sol y Canto
Sol y Canto is the award-winning Pan-Latin ensemble led by Puerto Rican/Argentine singer and percussionist Rosi Amador and New Mexican guitarist, singer and composer Brian Amador. For this special concert they are joined by their bandmates Keala Kaumeheiwa (upright bass), Paul Lieberman (flute, sax and percussion) and Queralt Giralt Soler (cello, vocals). Featuring Rosi’s crystalline voice and Brian’s lush Spanish guitar and inventive compositions, Sol y Canto is known for making their music accessible to Spanish- and non-Spanish speaking audiences of all ages.The video of their single, “En tu órbita,” was featured in the NPR Tiny Desk Contest Newsletter (out of 6,600 submissions)!

Sol y Canto’s original songs are distinguished by poetic, often quirky lyrics set in a framework of varied musical styles with surprising twists. They can make you dance, laugh, cry and sigh all in one concert. Their arrangements of classic and contemporary Latin tunes are always fresh and original. Since 1994, Sol y Canto has brought audiences to their feet in the Kennedy Center, the Getty Museum, Boston’s Symphony Hall, Puerto Rico’s Museo de Arte and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, as well as countless festivals.

Sol y Canto’s mission is to create music and performances that move, delight, excite and connect – connect the audience to the richness of Latin American culture; connect individuals, Hispanic and non-Hispanic, to each other through shared experience of music, poetry, humor and a joyful, playful vibe; and connect us all to our hopes and visions of a better world.

Brian and Rosi Amador are the proud parents of singer-songwriter Alisa Amador, a rising star musical artist and winner of the 2022 NPR Tiny Desk Competition, who grew up performing with her parents.
