OMAR SOSA & TIM ERIKSEN ON SOUNDCHECK WNYC!
Three-time Grammy-nominated Cuban composer and pianist Omar Sosa has long been influenced by his African roots. On his latest album, Across the Divide, he explores how popular music was shaped by the tunes that entered two ports during the slavery years: Havana and Chesapeake Bay. He talks to WNYC's Soundcheck host, John Schaefer, about it and plays live in the studio.
