Latin Artist of the Month for November 2020
Omega is the inventor and leader of the musical genere “Urban Merengue” the revelation of Caribbean Music of the latest years. A musical revolution coming “from below” and pushed by the strenght of “the Calle” (the Street). An overwhelming success with unique terms. A fame born among people and without the help of traditional media and discographic label. Omega swept over every existing parameter in today’s Latin Urban Music with his “Mambo Violento”. In 2009 he finally releases his first “official” album, entitled “El Dueño Del Flow”, released worldwide by Planet Records under license from Allegro Productions. In 2011 he releases “El Dueño Del Flow 2”, an updated version of 2009 album including some “Bonus Tracks”.
Harnessing in his rhythms and lyrics he is the true voice of “la calle” (the streets). Nothing comes close to the media phenomenon that Omega has caused in the music of the Caribbean and the United States.
