Omar Pérez-Then

Omar likes concon or crispy rice, as you may know it. He’s from the Dominican Republic, and no, he doesn’t play baseball, but he loves to sing and write songs. That’s the reason why he moved to Southern California in early 2007 to start the Commercial Music/Professional Vocalist program at Long Beach City College. For many years, he was an apprentice of the world-renowned Soprano María Remolá, was a “lover” on the cast of “Evita” – the Musical under the direction of Amaury Sánchez, and performed in a small latin band in his native Dominican Republic.

As of late, Omar released a passionate collection of his own compositions in Spanish, on his first EP album “O Mayúscula,” where he treats us with his own personal style he likes to refer to as “Caribbean Soul,” a fusion of his R&B/Soul influences and Caribbean roots. This sound has taken him to venues in New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and all around the Dominican Republic, his home country, where he has charmed audiences at Casa de Teatro, Hard Rock Cafe – Santo Domingo (as opening act for the Multi-Latin GRAMMY Winning artist, Noel Schajris) and consequently, his own residency for Lunes de Cantautor. Also, serving as supportive musician for artists like J Balvin, Nicky Jam, and Chino y Nacho at the HTV • Heat Latin Music Awards in Punta Cana’s Playa Blanca.
