African Night Fever Presents: Omar Sosa, Seckou Keita

"“Sosa and Keita deliver a work that variously ebbs, flows and sparkles” ~ Jazzwise

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.

Following the worldwide release of their debut album Transparent Water, the pair are taking to the road this November with percussionist Gustavo Ovalles, giving UK audiences a thrilling live experience of their new recording.

Sosa and Keita are both acclaimed musical adventurers with a rich global heritage that spans jazz, Latin, and African influences, and the combination of both artists on stage together is an incredibly exciting prospect.

Transparent Water is the latest example of Omar Sosa’s transcendent 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 latest solo album 22 Strings, alongside a nomination for Best Artist.

Co-produced by Theatr Mwldan, Mintaka Music and OTA Records.

Please note, this event is all seated."
