Eggun: The AFri-American Experience. Wizard jazz pianist Omar Sosa stops off in Rome with his group to present his latest release, Eggun: the Afri-Lectric experience. Eggun, in the West African spiritual practice of Ifa and its various expressions, are the spirits of those who have gone before us, both in our personal families and those who serve as our spiritual guides. Sosa's album began as a commission from the Barcelona Jazz Festival in 2009 to create a tribute performance to Miles Davis's classic Kind Of Blue on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. Inspired by the album Sosa has written a suite of music honouring the spirit of freedom in Davis's seminal work, with jazz textures enriched by the subtle and expressive use of electronic elements. Special guests on the project include guitarist Lionel Loueke and percussionists Pedro Martinez and Gustavo Ovalles.
