‘One of Sosa’s great gifts is an ability to cherry-pick from the world’s musics and make them his own with ease.’
Expressive, passionate and fuelled by Latin rhythms and folkloric traditions, Omar Sosa Quarteto AfroCubano breathe new life into jazz fusion.
An adventurous and virtuosic composer-pianist-band leader (whose energetic performances are legendary), Omar Sosa blends traditional Afro-Cuban influences with modern jazz harmonies for a brilliantly joyous and thoroughly contemporary global sound. He has graced the prestigious stages of Carnegie Hall, Monterey Jazz Festival, the Getty Center and beyond, reaching new heights with his Quarteto AfroCubano.
Underpinned by a rousing freedom, a swinging sense of his Cuban roots and a meditative temperament, Sosa is at once delicate, spacious and evocative.
