Next album of six-time GRAMMY-nominated Cuban composer and pianist, Omar Sosa is "EGGUN", the Afri-Lectric Experience and will be released in Spring 2013. Enriching the jazz textures with subtle and expressive electronic elements, "EGGUN" honors the spirit of freedom of Miles Davis' seminal "Kind of Blue" recording, and provides a medium for musical elements from Africa to shape and develop the music.
"Sosa's music is the unifying sort, yoking together Africa and jazz and Latin America and hip-hop. He makes it work, being one of those rare birds whose keyboard skills are near those of Chick Corea or Chucho Valdes." (Ben Ratliff, New York Times)
