These two kindred spirits have been performing together since 1999, delighting audiences throughout Europe, Japan, and the United States with their inspired musical chemistry and creativity. The intimate duo setting allows Mr. Sosa to exult freely and passionately at the piano, moving with ease from intensive groove patterns to delicate, balladic modes of expression.
