Omar Sosa Plays YAMAHA
Thank-you to our friends at Yamaha Artist Services Europe and Yamaha Artist Services Nashville for their ongoing support of my music and career. I had the pleasure recently of recording the music for an artist profile video (click the photo to view) at the Yamaha showroom in Rellingen (Hamburg), Germany as a way of expressing my enthusiasm for the wonderful pianos made by Yamaha.

I would also like to express my appreciation for the long cooperation we`ve enjoyed with Yamahiko, maker of fine instrument pick-up systems. I depend on Yamahiko piano pick-ups for all of my concert touring and studio recording. We use Yamahiko pick-ups for Kalimba and other instruments as well.

DEMsticks DEM`Sticks

We`ve had the good fortune recently of connecting with DEM`Sticks, maker of great bundle rod drum sticks and African fans. Thank-you to Dave Deming for his fine craftsmanship and support of our music.

DEM`Sticks are remarkably strong bamboo percussion implements used to create articulate, yet warm, drumming effects. The Bundle-Rod styles have rubber O-Rings to either focus or allow disbursed sonic textures. The African Fans are flattened percussion brushes, described as "articulate, crunchy, organic, and alive". New to this family of implements are the Bam-Brooms, combining broom corn, African prairie grass for softness, and bamboo reeds for articulation.

New Omar Sosa &
Yilian Cañizares
CD Release!
October 5, 2018

Aguas

Pianist Omar Sosa and violinist-vocalist Yilian Cañizares have come together to create Aguas, a very beautiful and personal album. Featuring their compatriot, percussionist Inor Sotolongo, Aguas reflects the perspectives of two generations of Cuban artists living outside their homeland, interpreting their roots and traditions in subtle and unique ways. Songs range from the poignant to the exuberant, and are expressive of the exceptional musical chemistry, poetic sensibilities, and originality of the artists.

The album 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 of the album is inspired by the important influences of water — its hidden powers, its infinite transmutations, and its relentless creation and destruction. There is a sense, as well, for Omar and Yilian, of how water represents both separation from, and nostalgia for, the land of their birth.
