After copping a Grammy for his third record Echoes of Love, Omar is back with a full-on sonic assault to make sure he does it again. Not exactly pop, he does turn it up a notch loading the new age deck with pop and jazz smarts, keeping it buoyant, upbeat and winkingly sassy.” —Chris Spector, Midwest Record
After celebrating his 2012 Grammy-winning Echoes of Love, Omar softens the mood to serenade us with the romantic melodies of Daytime Dreamer. Featuring six brand new tracks and five previously released selections, the familiar splashes of Omar's signature world textures (oud, duduk, violin and guitar) weave back and forth in a sublime dance with his exquisite piano compositions.
Smell the exotic spices, sway with the blissful grooves and heed the call to devotion as you listen to this exalted, ecstatic music by contemporary mystic and master multi-instrumentalist Karunesh. Featuring good friend Govi on oud and sitar.
This collection of Karunesh favorites is the perfect music to set the tone and enhance your own sacred “collection” time. Whether that be the doing of, as in yoga, or the receiving of, as in massage, blissful is how you will feel. An exotic and often trance-like blend of sitar, guitar, keyboard, bansuri, oud, sarod, Indian violin, flute and soft vocals for invoking the sacred.
