about

Solana's second album has landed!

It's been a full two years since their last release and the band have spent the time gigging, touring, composing, arranging and generally musicking until their fingers fall off!

Along with adding members since the last album, the range of styles covered has expanded to include everything from swing to trip-hop and flamenco to balkan.

The ten tracks on the album present the whole spectrum of flavours included in their live shows, and comprise eight original compositions and two covers.

Track Name: The Triangle Key
Déjale comer
Ábrete y mira bién
Track Name: Sweet Swing Garden (feat. Johanna Herron)
Welcome home for the next few days, you can leave the real world behind you
Lose yourself don't be afraid to be just who you are
Open your mind, loosen your heart as you walk into the sweet swing garden
I'll meet you beneath the starts in the light of Shangri-La

Lose yourself don't be afraid, we're spinning round and round
Time to get lost in this masquerade, as we dance to Solana
Lose yourself don't be afraid, we're spinning round and round
Time to get lost in this masquerade, on our way to Shambala
