“Un piano aventureux et percussif”

Né à Camagueÿ (Cuba) en 1965, Omar Sosa s’est imprégné tant de musique classique (Chopin, Bartok ou Erik Satie) que de l’héritage Africain de la musique cubaine. Il a reçu, en 2003, une récompense du Smithsonian Associates à Washington pour l’ensemble de sa carrière. Son univers musical offre une nouvelle lecture des racines jazz et africaines de sa terre natale, en mariant le sacré de cet héritage aux sonorités latin jazz et contemporaines.

“La musique de Sosa unit l’Afrique au latin jazz et au Hip Hop. C’est un de ces oiseaux rares dont le talent au piano est proche d’un Chick Corea ou d’un Chucho Valdes” Ben Ratliff, le New York Times

In 2003, he received an award from the Smithsonian Associates in Washington for his career achievements. His musical universe offers a new understanding of the jazz and African roots of his native land, by blending everything sacred in this heritage to Latin Jazz and contemporary sounds.
