Biography

Solido (or Grupo Solido) are a Texas, USA based Grammy winners that make Latin / Tejano music. Members: Ben De Leon (lead vocals), Rolando Benavidez (vocals, Percussion), Medardo Garza (Bajo Sexto), Amado Garza (drums), Fernando Trevino (electric bass) and Elijio Salinas (accordion)

When a group shot to fame almost overnight, changes can be difficult for members - but has made solid gains even better since his amazing début. Solid managed to have one of the most impressive successes in the history of regional Mexican music when her first single, “Hasta la cima del cielo “, he stayed several months in the charts in 2000. Now, this group of six youths, based in Rio Grande City, Texas, which is the border between Mexico and the United States, delights us with a live album entitled Live with you. Was recorded during shows at the South Padre Island, Laredo, and Kingsville. The release CD / DVD also includes 3 new tracks recorded in the studio, standing by the first single “You.” The DVD includes video clips of Solid, images of the group playing live, and photos from the personal collection of the group.

Their members have always listened to both music from both sides of the border. Merging these influences, Solid has remained true to its roots and has forged a sound with which they identify their fans in Mexico and the United States. 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 chanting. Returns, the previous CD Strong, received a Latin Grammy nomination this year in the category of Best Tejano Album.
