Inspired by his native Camagüey, the Afro-Cuban inland bastion, Omar Sosa (piano, keys) travels the world with his virtuosic, mercurial electro-acoustic quartet: fellow Camagüeyanos Leandro Saint-Hill (saxophones, flute, vocals) and Ernesto Simpson (drums, vocals), plus Mozambique native Childo Tomas (bass, kalimba, vocals). “Ritual space and time-honored practice” (Popmatters) assure transporting intensity.
