Place Pierre Betz – Souillac

Free jazz, free Africa

The Cuban pianist and composer Omar Sosa can be described as an unusual but visionary musician whose distinctive style derives from his quest for the musical legacy of the African diaspora whose components have been scattered around the world over the centuries. He follows in the footsteps of musical tradition, shows how the various strands are inter-related and how it is possible to reconcile them, to keep the sounds of Africa alive and to go on creating. Omar Sosa makes us share in his firm belief that it is possible to transcend each sound, each note, each emotion and that this not only forges a link between us but also a link with something else. Swing, dance, the role of the body and spirituality, all of which give his music a soul, have a common origin in the confiscated Africa of slaves. In Omar Sosa’s inspired music, in his rhythms and his daring, cultures are reconciled and languages (Yoruba, Arabic, English, Spanish and Portuguese) co-exist. Instruments from a range of horizons come together. His connivance with jazz is borrowed from the music of pianists such as Oscar Peterson, Herbie Hancock, Chick Korea and Keith Jarrett and from the bop harmonies of Charlie Parker, the spiritualist threnodies of John Coltrane and above all from the highly personal style of Thelonious Monk. On stage every performer has his own profile and aura: Leandro Saint Hill’s fingers fly as he breathes life into his saxophone, the smiling giant double-bass player Childo Tomas, gives the music its structure, the percussionist Marque Gilmore seeks perfection on his drums, Joo Kraus introduces a note of understated emotion on his trumpet and Omar Sosa hammers out his music on his piano and his Fender Rhodes. Serenity and spirituality are key components in this quintet and are developed to the full: sometimes the music explodes and becomes delirious, taking possession of Sosa and dragging him into a dizzy whirl - a visionary in a frenzied dance. “Afreecanos”, a kaleidoscopic, open-ended concept dedicated to the gods of the Afro-Cuban Santeria religion and to the freedom of jazz, brings different cultures together in a new style of music imbued with benign spirituality.
