SOL NATION is the product of Melbourne's communal musical scene - at its heart lies the reggae experience of Paulo Almeida (The Dili Allstars), the rock charisma of Colin Badger (Painters and Dockers), and the fiery ardour of soul-mama, powerhouse Kattimoni.
Sol Nation has created one of the most exuberant, colourful, intoxicating and exciting live shows in Australia. With a charismatic, high energy, infectious performance along with a strong global conscience, Sol Nation is a unique and must-see Australian musical experience.
INFECTIOUS rhythms, worldly lyrics and impassioned musicianship from Dili to Cairns, Lisbon to Rio, Sol Nation draws upon a wealth of international musical culture to bring you a melting pot of Reggae, Samba, Funk, Salsa, East Timorese folk and African dance music.
The band have toured nationwide and internationally from dancing up a storm in Arnhem Land to featuring at some of the best festivals, such as Woodford, Moomba, Port Fairy, AWME, St Kilda, Brunswick, Reggaetown, White Night and Globe 2 Globe, to name a few. The band have toured through East Timor and recently returned from touring Malaysia where they were one of the headliners for the Langkawi Island International Music Festival.
