Queen Omega & The Royal Souls

Knockengorroch 2024 Artist Queen Omega Live Band

We are proud to welcome Queen Omega & The Royal Souls to the Knockengorroch stage!

Originally from San Fernando in Trinidad, Queen Omega began appearing on local talent shows at the age of 9, wrote her own calypsos and even went so far as to rap on national television. She later sang backing vocals for producer Kenny Philips, accompanying many soca artists in the studio and on stage. Raised in a musicians family, she quickly became passionate about reggae and dancehall music, but also grew up listening to soul artists like Aretha Franklin, Anita Baker and Whitney Houston, jazz and traditional music from Trinidad, foundations that will inspire her throughout her career. Inspired by her Rastafarian faith, she also rapidly developed her writing skills and it was in the early 2000s that her career began on stage in Jamaica. She performed there with the Solomon Band for the Caribbean Music Expo, met producer Mickey D, who took her to London the following year for a first series of live shows.

Queen Omega has now entered roots reggae history as a feminine icon, with her unique voice and precise, conscious messages. On stage, Queen Omega marks a multigenerational public with her almost unlimited vocal performances that combine reggae, Caribbean, jazz and soul sounds … but also by her authenticity, her energy and her undeniable presence!
