Oakland’s SOL Development represents a generation of forward thinkers through stories that empower and uplift. The band, made up of educators and activists, fully embraces Nina Simone’s challenge to artists – to reflect the times in which they live. Fearlessly taking on today’s tough topics, SOL Development sheds light on the political and cultural climate through narratives of freedom and encourages listeners to strive for excellence, self-expression, and personal growth. Committed to being a “Source Of Light” their positive message has taken root, earning them a place on stages with Yasiin Bey, Common, Yo-Yo Ma, Masego, India Arie, GZA, Jidenna, and Femi Kuti.
