OTÁ, 2021, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Fans of Omar Sosa know of his passion and intensity, that resonates in his music. For his latest endeavor Sosa takes An East African Journey, collaborating with masterful local musicians in Madagascar, Kenya, Ethiopia, Mauritius, Zambia, Burundi and Sudan. The instrumentation is a bit different on this release including banjos, violins, guitars, harp and a wealth of percussion that imparts a unique flavor to these traditional African rhythms. We liked the funky sway of “Shibinda”, “Thuong Mok Loga”, “Eretseretse” and “Veloma E”.
