Barcelona-based and Grammy-nominated musician Omar Sosa on tour throughout the United States

Music.  15/03/2020

Sosa will be touring with violinist-vocalist Yilian Cañizares and folkloric Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles and playing songs from his recent album Aguas, recorded with Cañizares. Aguas reflects the perspectives of two generations of Cuban artists living outside their homeland, interpreting their roots and traditions in subtle and unique ways.  Songs range from the poignant to the exuberant, and are expressive of the exceptional musical chemistry, poetic sensibilities, and originality of the artists.
