Cuban Pianist/Bandleader Omar Sosa Named Finalist in International Songwriting Competition
Published February 5, 2006

Cuban pianist-composer-bandleader Omar Sosa has been named a finalist in the 2005 International Songwriting Competition (Instrumental) for his composition "Mis Tres Notas." 1.4% of almost 15,000 entrants were selected as finalists. Winners in 15 categories will be announced in March 2006. Judges include Sonny Rollins, Macy Gray, Tom Waits, and John Scofield.

"Mis Tres Notas" first appeared on the Omar Sosa CD "Free Roots"
(OTA1003), and was recently re-released on the Omar Sosa compilation, "Ballads"
(OTA1015).

Songs of the finalists are eligible for the People's Voice - an online voting contest that allows the public to listen to all the finalists' songs and vote for their favorite.  People's Voice is separate from, and in addition to, the winners selected by ISC's panel of judges.

If you would like to review the 2006 ISC finalists and consider a vote
