Paolo Fresu and Omar Sosa

What better opening for the Invitation series—dedicated to sublime jazz collaborations—than this remarkable Italian trumpeter musician famed for his many inspired Montreal pairings? In this first evening the longtime friend of the Festival (already making his 11th appearance here!) takes the stage with the great Omar Sosa. The keyboard wizard, whom some consider to have invented a new type of Latin jazz, arrives with a sensual hip hop-accented music inspired by his Cuban heritage as well as African and Arab music. It’s the Italo-Cuban musical summit Paolo had been hoping for!
