Transparent Water Trio is a collaboration between 7-time GRAMMY-nominated Cuban pianist, composer and bandleader Omar Sosa, known for his blending of Afro-Cuban rhythms, and award-winning Senegalese kora master, singer and Griot Seckou Keita, featuring folkloric Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles. Sosa and Keita are both musical adventurers with rich global heritages spanning jazz, Latin and African influences. Transparent Water is the latest example of Omar Sosa’s transcendent determination to seek new musical combinations, a manifestation of improvisatory freedom and the joy of shared artistic expression. Transparent Water Trio will perform at Merkin Concert Hall on March 9 at 7:30pm.
