From explosive melodies to percussive Blasts!

Cuban pianist Omar Sosa has a well earned reputation as a kinetic performer, a musician extraordinaire, composer, arranger, pianist, percussionist, improviser, and communicator. His Afro-Cuban based mix of jazz and world music is broadly expressive - full of power and passion, subtlety and grace. Omar draws energy from each culture he touches while incorporating space and light into his virtuosic playing. This links him to older Cuban forms as well as the mysteries of post modern jazz. 

Sosa is shaping a new synthesis of Latin and American jazz. his style evokes distant echoes of McCoy Tyner's power, Keith Jarrett's improvisational flights of fancy, and Thelonious Monk's angular harmonies, transforming the piano into 88 well-tuned drums. He manages to fuse Afro-Cuban folklore with jazz attitude and hip-hop overlay creating an utterly unique experience." –The Village Voice

Sosa is one of the truly illuminated minds of world jazz.” –BILLBOARD Magazine
