Event description
Join us at Birdland for the AGUAS Trio, with Omar Sosa, Yiliam Cañizares and Gustavo Ovalles!

About this Event

Cuban pianist Omar Sosa and Cuban violinist-vocalist Yilian Cañizares have come together to create AGUAS Trio, an inventive and engaging mix of the artists’ Afro-Cuban roots, Western classical music, and jazz. Featuring Venezuelan percussionist Gustavo Ovalles, Aguas Trio reflects the perspectives of two generations of Cuban artists living outside their homeland, interpreting their 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 concerts at Birdland are the group’s North American debut!

AGUAS Trio 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, the music of AGUAS Trio is inspired by the important influences of water—its hidden powers, its infinite transmutations and its relentless destruction and creation.
