Biography

DJ Meistro, Deep Sang and DJ Stylus have all spent years immersed in the Washington DC dance music, nightlife and live music scenes, making names for themselves in every niche from underground hip-hop to reggae to electronica. It was only a matter of time before their paths crossed often enough to consider teaming up to do something together. The DJ trio was fortunate enough to connect with percussionist Hermon Farahi, the funk weapon that completes the Sol Power experience.

A mutual love for the sounds of the African diaspora was the spark for the crew coming together. The Sol Power selection arsenal draws from samba, salsa, afrobeat, cumbia and other deeply rooted genres as well as their modern electronic versions. Whether it's a classic Dominican merengue or a driving afro-latin deep house track, Hermon Farahi's expansive vocabulary of rhythms on percussion binds it all together.

The Sol Power All-Stars were in monthly residency from 2009 through 2010 in the bustling Adams Morgan nightlife district of Washington DC before moving on to the world famous Eighteenth Street Lounge in November of 2010.

In the summer of 2010, the crew put together a day long block party in DC that made good on the word 'Sol' in their name, bringing together everyone from toddlers to grandparents to enjoy music and dance in the sunshine.
