Performing mostly instrumental music, Electric Piquete’s tight rhythm section, heavy percussion and melodious horns are also accompanied by vocals and rapping on a few songs.

Sol and The Tribu is a musical group of Cuban musicians that blends traditional Caribbean music and modern technology with a distinct 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.

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

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