Omar Sosa And Seckou Keita at The Apex...

As part of a huge international tour, Cuban jazz pianist and composer Omar Sosa and Senegalese kora player and singer Seckou Keita, perform music from their first collaborative album together, ‘Transparent Water’.

Omar Sosa And Seckou Keita have a rich global heritage that spans jazz, Latin and African music, and the new album brings together influences from across five continents. The record is a captivating dialogue full of serenity and a sense of gentle elation.

“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.” (World Music Central)

Having grown from a chance musical encounter, it’s an album born largely out of improvisation – unlocking a profoundly spiritual brand of music. It is the latest example of Sosa’s 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 his last solo album 22 Strings alongside a nomination for Best Artist.

The combination of both artists on stage together is an exciting prospect and, at The Apex on Monday 20 November at 7.30pm, they will be joined by percussionist Gustavo Ovalles, to demonstrate the sense of shared joy so evident on the album.

Tickets are £18.50, with £5 tickets for those aged under 25, ring the box office on 01284 758000 or see the website, www.theapex.co.uk for details.
