Pianist Omar Sosa and violinist-vocalist Yilian Cañizares have come together to create 'Aguas', a beautiful and very 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 material on Aguas is an inventive and engaging mix of the artists' Afro-Cuban roots, Western classical music, and jazz. The album is dedicated to Water, and espe- cially 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.

The eleven tracks on 'Aguas' were written and produced by Omar and Yilian, and recorded and mixed at Artesuono Studios in Udine, Italy by Stefano Amerio.


"Together, supplemented by electronic brushstrokes and the percussion flourishes of Inor Sotolongo, these two Europe-based Cubanos use their shared roots as a base from which to explore new avenues, on a spare, elegant work that is fittingly dedicated to Oshun - the deity of sensuality and sweet waters." - **** Evening Standard

"Aguas is a hugely generous album with many moments of pure gorgeousness." - LondonJazz News
