Omar Sosa & Seckou Keita
Transparent Water (World Village)
Cuban pianist and serial musical adventurer Omar Sosa has discovered yet another splendidly empathetic collaborator in the British-based kora player Seckou Keita. Understated and meditative yet also rhapsodic, Afro-Cuban roots and jazz influences mesh with the kora’s rippling strings on a series of beautiful melodies with a unifying sense of flowing creativity. A Top of the World in #132.
