Have you ever heard of the guembri, oud, djembe or balafon? Such exotic instruments are heard in the music of Omar Sosa; with explosive playing and adventurous writing, Sosa mixes the folkloric music of Esmeraldas, an Arican-rooted culture in Ecuador, with Cuban marimba roots to create a blend of music loosely labeled as Afro-Cuban. Sosa mixes his eclectic roots with Miles Davis’ classic recordings to create Kind of Blue, a tribute performance with Sosa’s Afri-Lectric Sextet, on Sunday, Nov. 3, at the Osher Marin JCC. 200 North San Pedro Road, San Rafael. 6:30pm. $25—$35. 415.444.8000.
