      EVENT DETAILS
      Omar Sosa & Yilian Cañizares Aguas Trio Featuring Gustavo Ovalles

      “The spiritual, mostly quieter songs [...] come to life through the exciting mix of styles and the intensity of Sosa’s piano music and Cañizares’ often improvised violin parts and her smoky alto voice.” —Doppelpunkt Magazine

      Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and violinist-vocalist Yilian Cañizares have come together to create Aguas Trio, an inventive and engaging mix of the artists’ Afro-Cuban roots, Western classical music and jazz. Featuring Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles, Aguas Trio reflects the perspectives of two generations of Cuban artists living outside their homeland, interpreting their roots and traditions in subtle and unique ways. Their songs range from the poignant to the exuberant and are expressive of the exceptional musical chemistry, poetic sensibilities and originality of the artists. 

      Aguas Trio is dedicated to Water, and especially to Oshun, the Goddess of Love and Mistress of Rivers in the Lucumí tradition of Yoruba ancestry known in Cuba as Santería—a spiritual practice important to both artists. As water is synonymous with life and energy and strength and space, the music is inspired by the important influences of water—its hidden powers, its infinite transmutations and its relentless destruction and creation.
