Two Cuban icons from different generations come together with a shared sublime artistic vision. NPR once wrote that Sosa’s piano “is not a musical instrument, but a conduit to spiritual awareness,” and this collaboration transports listeners to an even higher plane. Cañizares lifts the soul with every draw of her violin bow with melodies in turn poignant and exuberant. Her sultry, poetic vocals—sung in Spanish, French, and Yoruba—are moving no matter what your native tongue may be. Sosa and Cañizares’ duet album, Aguas, is an homage to the Santeria goddess Oshun, and the flowing songs evoke water’s hidden powers, infinite transmutations, and relentless creation.
