Cuban Pianist Omar Sosa and Senegalese kora player and vocalist Seckou Keita have assembled an extraordinary album seamlessly melding Latin American and West African music. Additional guest instrumentalists bring with them a host of other sounds predominantly emanating from the Far East. The koto is a traditional Japanese stringed instrument whilst the sheng is a Chinese mouth-blown free reed instrument consisting of vertical pipes. The bawu is a Chinese wind instrument and the geomungo is a traditional Korean type of zither.

Pianist Omar Sosa, a very spiritual Cuban musician with global perspectives, has enlisted some world musicians to create a beautiful studio album. Indeed, recordings were done in Germany, Beijing, Paris and Nante, France. In many ways, the album reminds me of Pharoah Sanders' Journey to The One from 1992, in which he incorporated Hindustani sitar and Japanese koto instrumentation. Sosa's key partner is kora player Seckou Keita, who also performs on talking drum, djembe, and sabar.
