Sol 18 creates music that generates a myriad of sounds by infusing a blend of Latin rhythms and cultural elements . Sol (sun), represents the purpose of their music: to reach audiences of all races, languages, ages and music preferences like rays from the bright sun. The Sol 18 project was initiated on the 18th day of the month by Jose Tejada, hence the significance of the number 18.
