Review: Omar Sosa and Seckou Keita, The Apex, Bury St Edmunds, Monday, November 20
- Credit: Archant
It was a wonderful, fantastic combination of music which spanned jazz, latin and African influences.
Omar and Seckou were joined on stage by Venezuelian percussionist Gustavo Ovalles whose varied instruments combined to produce amazing sounds and rhythms.
They performed many tracks from their “Transparent Water album which is dedicated to what Omar called “the most important element on earth.”
There were no words and no introduction to the trio who came on stage to produce a magical and mysterious musical evening.
Omar was spectacular on keyboards with his Cuban influenced sounds and Seckou matched his partner’s musicality on a double-fretted kora, a long-necked harp lute from his Western African homeland, along with his Senegalese vocals.

Their performance was stunningly evocative and moving and encapsulated a fantastic evening of stunning music which thrilled their admiring audience.
