Real Music® proudly announces that recording artist Omar Akram has been honored with a Grammy nomination for his 4th CD release, “Echoes of Love”. Akram is the first ever Afghan American to be nominated for a Grammy.
Described as “a marriage of passion and grace, of adventure and relaxation, of beauty and raw earthiness,” Akram’s music reflects his multi-cultural roots, incorporating piano, violin, guitars, flute, Persion ney and world percussion. The son of a U.N. diplomat, Akram has spent decades living around the globe, soaking up musical influences from far flung locales such as Afghanistan, Cuba, France, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
“Every culture I have encountered has influenced my music,” explains Akram. “Also reflected in my compositions are elements of my classical training, the early new age synthesists, and the melodic content I learned from solo pianists. …In a world where communication and understanding between cultures is sometimes difficult, I try to have the instruments speak to one another in a manner that crosses any cultural barriers.”
