Transparent Water' is an exquisitely beautiful new collaboration between the seven-time Grammy-nominated pianist, composer and bandleader, Omar Sosa, from Cuba, and the award-winning Senegalese kora master and singer, Seckou Keita.

Following the worldwide release of their debut album 'Transparent Water', the pair are taking to the road together with percussionist, Gustavo Ovalles, to give UK audiences a thrilling live experience of their new recording.

Sosa and Keita are both acclaimed musical adventurers with a rich global heritage that spans jazz, latin and African influences, and the combination of both artists on stage together is an incredibly exciting prospect.

'Transparent Water' is the latest example of Omar Sosa's transcendent determination to seek new combinations, a manifestation of improvisatory freedom and the joy of shared artistic expression with Keita - who recently won the Songlines 'Best Album' Award 2016 for Africa & Middle East for his latest solo album '22 Strings' alongside a nomination for 'Best Artist'.
