Transparent Water Trio is the new CD and concert collaboration between 7-time GRAMMY-nominated pianist-composer-bandleader Omar Sosa and U.K.-based Senegalese kora master and singer Seckou Keita, featuring folkloric Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles. The project is the latest example of Omar’s determination to seek new combinations of instruments and cultures, wherein the musical destination is subordinate to the joy of shared artistic expression.

Transparent Water – suggestive of translucence and flowing light – is a deeply spiritual performance, revealing its inspiration in the close and compassionate listening of artists engaged in a captivating musical conversation, reaching across three continents to probe the collective spirit of the human condition. Felix Contreras of NPR Music put it this way: “While living with this album for some time before I tried to put words to my fascination, I often imagined Omar Sosa lifted up to the Yoruba spirits in the form of a swarm of butterflies. Such is the beauty of his musical spirit.”
