Join us at The Bread and Roses for a breath taking performance from Omer Makessa.
Omer Makessa is a master percussionist, experienced performer and singer and songwriter from Martinique in the Caribbean; an island with a vibrant multi-cultural music scene. Omer grew up in a musical family, introduced to music by his father from a young age.
“Since childhood the traditional music of the Caribbean has always been close to my heart. Even when still a teenager I brought together my first fusion band, using
traditional and modern instruments - pretty radical for its time on a colonial French island. We were on the radio and performed all over the Caribbean”.
