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. Both acclaimed musical adventurers with a rich global heritage that spans jazz, latin and African influences, tonight will be a thrilling opportunity to hear their extraordinary music live.
Transparent Water is where world music meets world jazz, where tradition meets improvisation and where the lines of spiritual and earthy meet. The result is stunningly evocative. TJ Nelson, World Music Central
