On her CD there are other duets, e.g. with her compatriot Omar Sosa. Today and here: live.Marialy Pacheco & Omar Sosa `DUETS` Marialy Pacheco-pianoOmar Sosa-piano`For me, a piano is like 88 drums. When you play with Marialylst, the dynamics are transformedof 88 drums in a 88-smile. Or in 88 flowers. `(Omar Sosa)This duo promises pure communication: 2 people talk and talkother. There is told, asked, answered, contradictorysmelled, ironic, flirted, thoughtstaken, continued, directed in a different direction, as intimate moments withcommitted disputes. It is almost the `highest art of dialogue`-the ability to enterconstructive conversation zu, not to talk past each other, to introduce yourself, withoutwhile dominating the others.It is precisely this dialogue that Marialy and Omar perform and celebrate a `soundingExchange of ideas `!Cuban jazz-Pianists have always been listeningold impression-by Chucho Valdes,Gonzalo Rubalcaba and Hilario Duran to Roberto Fonseca and David Virelles. And again and againCaribbean temperament and excellent technique combine to form a game culture thatis breathtaking. VirtuIt is an atmosphere of serenity, fire and joy, literally liberated and released after a whilestrict classical education-All of this is heard in Marialy Pacheco and Omar Sosa. Neverboth seem to have the impression of having to prove each other something. Itis about theMusic, about the musical. Both are Cubans, but more widely traveled artists who not onlyJazz are interested, but-to MUSIC.Omar Sosais a cosmopolitan and globetrotter who is like a sponge the languages of hiszahlreilife stations are absorbed-Cuba, Nicaragua, Ethiopia, Congo and Angola, Ecuador,the USA, Spain. Musically, he manages to be everywhere at the same time, in the Caribbean, in the south-andNorth America and Africa.Marialy Pachecopresents onecompletely individual and authentic style, that of playfulnesswill be carried. In this she combines elements of Cuban folk music with the variableRichness of sound of a Keith Jarrett, the ability to polyphonic lines of a Bill Evans andof theVirtuosity of an Oscar Peterson.
