lil Omar

Music Fredericton, NB

From the tropical waters of the Lake Atitlán in the Guatemalan Highlands, to the still and frozen Wolastoq river, Oscar Tecu (lil Omar) portrays coming of age through his music. The Mayan songwriter shares his experience of being a refugee in the east coast of Canada by drawing inspiration from memories of romantic telenovela soundtracks, Joāo Gilberto’s bossa nova and samba style, to indie rock influences.
