Taos Solar Music FestivalTaos Solar Music Festival
June 28 – June 30, 2008
June 29 – July 1, 2007
Taos, NM

Solarfest was one of the first fests to tie music to sustainability and alternative energy.

In 2007 & 2008, the festival was held in Kit Carson Park, just blocks from Taos’s historic plaza. From its small-town, in-town location, festival-goers could stroll to the galleries, shops, and restaurants of Taos and still hear plenty of music.

The music is a blend of improvisational bands mixed with acoustic and world beat sets.

Recording by Omar Rane, Tone Palace and David Glasser, Airshow Mastering.
Post production by James Tuttle and Jason McDaniel, Airshow Mastering, Boulder CO, and Omar Rane, Taos NM.
