Omar Sosa searches out new sounds for a music that is simultaneously his own, and part of an Afro-Cuban culture.
Mulatos is a fitting description for the kind of approach Omar is adopting - a mix of Cuban music that dances with rhythmic inspirations of Indian tabla, jazz drums, and studio mixing. Listening to the voices of the Arabic lute, the oud, a fore runner of the Cuban tres, and European clarinet melodies reminding him of Paquito D'Rivera and the repertoire of the great Cuban masters, Omar Sosa's' unique way of imagining how this can fit together and making the leap to realize the recording of it, is what makes him stand out as a very modern musician an inventive and courageous artist.
