Omar Sosa, Seckou Keita, Gustavo Ovalles: Transparent Water

Location: Bled Festival Hall
Tickets: 10 EUR. | Buy ticket mojekarte.si logo

Transparent Water is an exquisitely beautiful new collaboration between the seven-time GRAMMY-nominated pianist, composer and bandleader Omar Sosa from Cuba, and the award-winning Senegalese kora master and singer Seckou Keita. Following the worldwide release of their debut album Transparent Water on 24th February 2017, the pair are taking to the road together this year with percussionist Gustavo Ovalles to give audiences a thrilling live experience of their new recording. Sosa and Keita are both acclaimed musical adventurers with a rich heritage that spans jazz, latin and African influences. The idea for the collaboration grew out of Sosa’s impromptu addition to a 2012 London date with drummer Marque Gilmore, in what became Sosa and Keita’s first musical encounter. Profoundly moved by the experience, Omar told Seckou he wanted to invite him to work together on a future recording project.

Transparent Water is the latest example of Omar Sosa’s transcendent determination to seek new combinations, a manifestation of improvisatory freedom and the joy of shared artistic expression with Keita, who recently won the Songlines Best Album Award 2016 for Africa & Middle East for his latest solo album 22 Strings alongside a nomination for Best Artist.
