“How to change the World?”
This is a question I used to ask myself as a child. I used to watch superheroes on TV, saving the World and doing wonders. I wanted to be one of them. I wanted to be useful. I wanted my life to be not just one more, but one that influenced society enough to make a difference. I didn’t want the World to serve me, but I wanted to be a servant to the World.
I was moved by music. It helped me rethink what I believed in and to restructure my paradigm. That is why I inherited my first guitar and started playing it. That is how, in 1999, armed with a baroque book with some guitar chords in the appendix, and tremendous stubbornness, I familiarized my neighbours with my most honest sounds.
The passion I had for what I had to say, and lots of divine guidance, allowed my first compositions to flourish successfully. At first, my songs were long and lyrics-filled. Little by little they became more refined to create a particular style, rich in a variety of rythms.
I find it hard to define my work in a specific genre, as I have touched on many of these in my own work. This is why I’d like to think of my music as fusion, but what I would really like to achieve is that my music is known by its lyrics and message, rather than by its genre. Balad, Electroacoustic, Bossanova, Rock Pop, Melodic Rock, Brit Pop, and Trio Music are just some examples of the rhythms you will find in my songs. If someone asks, “What kind of music does Omar play?”, you could reply: “A little bit of everything”, and you wouldn’t be too wrong.
I still have plenty to do, personally and professionally, but I am aware that great companies often start with small steps in the right direction. While I keep improving my proposition and developing my work, I invite you to join me in this trip we call life, and if I can leave you with something of benefit, I will feel well-served.
