And wait 'til you hear their 23-year old daughter, emerging singer-songwriter Alisa Amador, playing Alisa originals like
Never Seem To Last, a danceable, happy breakup song, and Talkin'.

Rosi and Brian will join for harmonies, too. Her soulful singing, poetically honest lyrics, and syncopated rhythms may lead you to cry, laugh or dance all within one set.

The Boston Globe hails them "sublime ambassadors of the Pan-Latin tradition" and their many accolades include Best of Boston for Latin rhythms by Boston Magazine and Outstanding Latin Act by the Boston Music Awards. Music critic Norman Weinstein of the Christian Science Monitor and Boston Phoenix observes:
"Every Sol y Canto album is a demonstration of what the poet Federico García Lorca identified as "deep song. Always they evoke the sensual splendor of simply being vitally, vividly alive in a magical and mysterious universe. Brian Amador is a Spanish modernist poet in the guise of a musician...Together, Rosi and Brian Amador create a musical marriage made in heaven."
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.
