We had the good fortune of connecting with Jasmine Ahmirah and Janelle Ross, both Co-Founders of Sol & Sound and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jasmine and Janelle, do you have any habits that you feel contribute to your effectiveness?
Not sure if this is discussed in a lot of business circles, but the role your intuition plays in business success is VITAL. As entrepreneurs, we often come across problems and scenarios where we are unsure of how to proceed and advice from others can only take you so far; so we have made the habit of including our intuition in our decision making process. We’ve even coined the phrase “in partnership with the universe!” Our business has been divinely guided every step of the way.

What should our readers know about your business?
Sol & Sound is trailblazing the path for our culture to prioritize mental, spiritual and generational healing through sacred sound therapy. Since 2020, Sol & Sound has combined meditation and music to offer unique sound healing experiences and the first ever, sound healing festival, that has attracted thousands of attendees in Los Angeles and todays leading wellness practitioners and music artists. Simply put, we make healing look appealing and we want it to spread like wildfire. Our next festival and our finale of 2022 takes place at The Beehive on October 2, 2022. Follow us on Instagram @solandsound or visit www.solandsound.com for more information.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Los Angeles is beautiful because there’s something out there for everyone. Our LA itinerary would definitely include these gems:

1. Flavors from Afar for a scrumptious multicultural meal
2. Stuff I Eat for the vegan experience
3. My Two Cents (their gumbo is delicious)
3. Workouts and Beach Volleyball with our friends at Equanimity Athletics
4. If you’re a Sol & Sound Day 1, you already know the vibes at the Exposition Park Rose Garden are a MUST.
5. Hiking in the Santa Monica Mountains is absolutely beautiful— with trails for all skill levels.
6. Geoffrey’s in Malibu for brunch right above the ocean
7. Delilah for an amazing night out in West Hollywood
