An all-star crew led by drummer & percussionist Michael Gerald rips through great original tunes and some killer Timba standards. Yosvel Bernal, Pedro Camacho and Jannier Rodríguez deliver the lead vocals. This discontinued record is now available in digital format with its original liner note booklet.

Like "Spirits of Havana", Sol y Soul was formed when one of Canada's top musicians -percussionist Michael Gerald- went to Cuba and fell in love the music. After several years of studying with Joel Páez, Joel Domínguez and other giants of the Timba scene, Michael came up with the idea of recording an album in Cuba, with members of the top Timba bands. He and his co-producer Edduar Bernal Pina put together an all-star group comprised of members of Paulito FG, Carlos Manuel, and Charanga Forever, with guest roles from such greats as Juan Ceruto, Alexander Abreu, and Joel Paez, (all from the legendary band which recorded Paulito's "Con la Conciencia Tranquila") as well as Amaury Pérez, and Sandier Ante, former composer and singer for both Charanga Habanera and Charanga Forever.
