As a way to familiarize my readers with OMNI's unique, genre-busting, and amazingly creative, honest, and challenging work, I'm starting with David d'Omni, who strikes me as the most "revolutionary" of these three "new men" - and that's saying a lot if you've seen any of them in action.
I keep trying to think of analogies, like "a white Cuban hip hop version of Bob Marley," but such comparisons really only insult the unique spirit and originality of both artists.
But one thing to keep in mind as you check these guys out is the following question:
What would it look like to be a truly rebellious, independent, critical-minded artist in a supposedly revolutionary society?
As words fail to capture what I mean - I suggest that you watch these four short videos and see for yourself.
1. "Evolucion" by David D'Omni.
Here are the opening lyrics so you can sing along:
[Amen, Amen; Open, Open;
Amen, Amen; Soul force for our people.] 2X
[Open the portals, Time is running out.
We are not immortal, Your children have grown.]
[This is their moment, Now is their time.
What they bring is beautiful, Don't fear what is new.]
[I come fresh, This is my generation.
We are not bad, no! We come in search of what is ours.]
[Don't cry father, We're not going to take anything from you!
It's a natural cycle, This happens in every generation.]
2. "Terapia y Oracion" by David D'Omni.
3. "Free Hop Musik" by David D'Omni.
4. "Creo en Ti" by David D'Omni.
