Omar Sosa Quarteto Americanos

September 21 @ 7:30 pm

Presented by Overture Center & The Sessions at McPike Park

Composer-pianist-bandleader Omar Sosa’s musical trajectory traces the Diaspora from Africa to Cuba and Brazil, from Central America to Ecuador’s African-descent communities, from San Francisco and New York to his current home base in Barcelona.

True to his Afro-Cuban origins, Sosa fashions a spirited vision of uncompromising artistic generosity that embraces humanity at large. Nominated for seven GRAMMY awards, twice for the BBC World Music Awards, recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the Smithsonian and recipient of the Afro-Caribbean Jazz Album of the Year award from the Jazz Journalists Association in NYC, Sosa entwines the expressive traditions of Africa and the Americas in a unique cosmopolitan voice, articulating a brilliant, joyous and thoroughly contemporary global jazz idiom.
