Musical soulmates who have bridged the Atlantic gulf between their countries of origin, Cuban pianist and composer Omar Sosa and Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu have created a one-of-a-kind musical confluence fuelled by quiet energy and shared genius.

First working together in 2006 on Sosa's live album Promise, they toured Italy two years later. After subsequently spending a spell as a groundbreaking jazz trio with Indian percussionist Trilok Gurtu, they recorded and released their duo album Alma with contributions from cellist Jaques Morelenbaum in 2012.

Since then, jazz lovers across the US have caught on to what aficionados in Europe have relished for years, and have been charmed by their propulsive performances that display a perfect combination of Sosa's Afro-Cuban influenced percussive style and Fresu's understated melodic phrasings that recall the spirit of Miles Davis.

Now, the duo makes their way to Singapore with a wellspring of compelling jazz fusion explorations in tow.
