Now as he returns to the NCEM, Omar joins forces with long-time collaborator pianist and composer Alex Wilson, another award-winning artist, for a special collaboration combining their intense musical energies alongside bass virtuoso Dimitris Christopoulos and Venezuelan percussion powerhouse Edwin Sanz.
Since appearing together on a joint billing at Glastonbury Festival in 2022, the Quartet have amazed audiences up and down the country. Each show promising to take the listener on a joyful, whirlwind journey of musical exuberance.
