Omar Sosa & Omar Sosa Afri-Lectric Sextet — Live at Vésinet Jazz Métis Festival
♣   Pianiste cubain et musicien migrateur, Omar Sosa étonne par sa maturité musicale et enchante par la finesse de ses arrangements qui mêlent jazz, musiques urbaines et rythmes afro-caribéens. Disque après disque, Omar Sosa s’est depuis le milieu des années 90, construit une identité hors-norme, insèrant dans sa musique des influences provenant de l’Afrique, des Caraïbes ou d’Amérique du sud.
♣   “Omar Sosa is an extraordinary musician embodying both the magical virtuosity of musicianship and its soulful roots all in one. Actually one could not exist without the other. In Mr. Sosa, they have taken such deep rootedness that his music is naturally of the Spirit and therefore an outpouring of the soul.”
Musical style:
♣   He has played with a number of world musicians all around the globe, and often collaborates with those outside the jazz and Afro-Cuban traditions. Sosa mixes jazz influences alongside Latin rhythms, North African percussions and spoken word/rap lyrics. He also references classical music. Political and spiritual, he describes his music as an expression of humanism and Santería. On various projects his sounds have ranged from pleasant and melodic, big Latin band, piano improvisation, world music, to free jazz and avant-garde.
♣   In January 2011, Omar Sosa won The 10th Annual Independent Music Awards in the Jazz Album category for Ceremony.

Description in french:
♣   Ce grand pianiste cubain a une musique qui va bien au-delà des clichés du latin jazz. Naviguant entre la Caraïbe et des ambiances à la Keith Jarret ou à la Thelonious Monk, il cherche à rassembler dans sa musique des éléments de la diaspora africaine disséminés au fil des siècles. À forte tendance jazz mâtinée de hip hop, sa musique déborde d'une sensualité où Cuba filtre à chaque note.
