Who is meant by the voice of the band? Is it the soloist? Or the singer? The lead singer?

I have no idea what this means! I would say ”Cine este solistul (solista) acestei trupe?”. But I don't know much about music. :)

"vocea unei trupe" is not so common. There is a specific slang for rock bands: chitarist, basist, toboşar, clăpar (guitar player, bass player, drummer, keyboard player). The lead singer is referred to as "vocalist" or "vocal" (rare). Example: Cristi Minculescu este vocalistul trupei Iris.

Or spokesperson?

Why does Duolingo sometimes insist that trupa translates as band, rejecting group, and at other times, it insists on group, rejecting band?
