An exquisite set of world music recordings featuring Cuban composer-pianist-bandleader Omar Sosa collaborating with seven East African artists, fusing traditional sounds with jazz in a subtle,
contemporary production.

The folkloric music forming the basis of the project was recorded by Omar Sosa while on tour in East Africa, including material from Madagascar, Kenya, Sudan, Ethiopia, Burundi, Zambia, and Mauritius. Jazz elements added include Omar Sosa on piano, Steve Arg elles on drums and percussion, and Christophe ‘Disco’ Minck on double bass, synths, and effects.

These recordings help expose some of the rich musical traditions of East Africa to new and wider audiences. Traditional instruments featured include the Valiha, Lokanga, Marovany, Kalumbu, Krar, Umuduri, Nyatiti, and Ravanne.
