OMG! Oye Mi Gaita

OMG-Press Kit

OMG Venezuelan Folk Music Ensemble Concert

Friday Dec 18, 2015 – 6:00 PM 

Shepherd University Theatre Hall, 3200 San Fernando Road L.A. CA 90065

Authentic Folk Music from Venezuela has a distinct joyful sound to it and OMG proudly brings it out today in all of its beauty and syncopation.

The band was created in 2008 in Los Angeles, when most of the original eleven members decided it was time to come out of the private party-merry-go-round and show their fun music to the world.

OMG stands for Oye Mi Gaita which means Listen To My Gaita, a musical style born in the western city of Maracaibo, Venezuela in the mid 1950’s.

The name “Gaita” comes from the Western European gothic word ‘gaits’ which means goat. The membrane that covers the exotic drum called “Furruco” is actually made up of goat leather, played with a vertical cane stick or “Verada” by Professor Daniel Indart.
