‘Omar Sosa & Seckou Keita’

Suba

In 2018, Cuban musician Omar Sosa stepped onto the stage at Bozar with a candle in his hand. Placing it on his piano as if performing a ritual, he set the atmosphere that would linger throughout the musical evening and the encounter with his loyal partner, Senegalese griot Seckou Keita. After Transparent Water (2017), the two virtuosos and poets of sound will present Suba (“dawn” in Malinke), their new album recorded during the pandemic: a hymn to hope and a profound reiteration of humanity’s eternal prayer for peace and world unity. On stage, the two masters are joined by their mutual partner, outstanding Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles. Experience this vibrant human and musical reunion, and discover their ethereal and bewitching universe, at the crossroads of Afro-Cuban, Mandingo and jazz music.
