Solido has a unique touch that makes them easily distinguishable among the many groups that perform in this popular regional Mexican style.
Solido managed to have one of the most impressive successes in the history of regional Mexican music when their first single, “Hasta la cima del cielo “, stayed several months in the charts in 2000. That was only the beginning for this group of six youths, based in Rio Grande City, Texas, on the U.S. Mexican border.
Despite the early award, their later recordings have charted higher and most consistently. Starting with 2009’s Que Importa, they have landed on the Top Latin Albums Chart six times. 2013’s Inolvidable and 2016’s Sentimientos both landed well within the Top 10, and four albums have landed on the Mexican Regional albums charts, including the 2016 recording that reached the top spot.
They’ve won both American and Latin Grammy Awards and have been nominated many times for a Grammy in the Tejano music category.
Their members have always listened to both music from both sides of the border. Merging these influences, Solido has remained true to its roots and has forged a sound that fans in Mexico and the United States identify with. Ben de Leon, solid vocalist, says that the soft shades of accordion and bajo sexto are pure Norteño, while the drums and her singing must be something Texan influences. Their sound can be considered romantic and melodic, is ideal for dancing and singing.
