Event Details

SOL RUIZ Sol Ruiz is back in has returned to Miami. Her music is a bridge between the US and Cuba, that brings these two very foreign lands and cultures as close to each other as they, in reality, are. It shows homage to her Cuban-American heritage, but there is more to it than just that: she is “Miami’s own globetrotting soul rebel”, exporting and expanding a migrant sound. Critics describe Sol as the “female Manu Chao”, and stated that “she has the voice of Janis Joplin and Celia Cruz”. Miami Herald named her “the Cuban Janis Joplin”, and she was appointed Miami’s Songwriter of the year in 2012. Sol sings and writes her world blues in her native tongue – Spanglish, along with English, Spanish, Italian and Piedmont dialect. The subjects of her lyrics are uncommon and bold, mostly showcasing a wild sense of humor. The sound draws on a wide array of music genres, from Son cubano, hip hop, and world music, to soul, funk and Cajun music, picking up rhythms and melodies and honing them to her own style. Sol is “a sight to see and a joy to hear”, but her strength comes in her live performances, which have the spirit of a punk rock show with an avant-garde attitude.” target=”_blank”>SOL RUIZ
