It was inevitable that Omar Perry would become a musical celebrity. He was born the son of the legendary Lee "Scratch" Perry. At the age of six, he was already working on some of his father's songs. He got interested in drums, and grew up between his father and artists like Max Romeo and Bob Marley.
His first single "Rasta Meditation" was produced by Adrian Sherwood (who is also performing at Reggae Geel this year). A few years ago he toured with Horace Andy (yes, also at Reggae Geel this year). In June he will release his new album "Life". We are curious for the live version at our festival, where he will perform together with East End Rock!
It may be a giveaway, but East-End-Rock is from Ostend. About 15 years ago, he started as a DJ and organised parties like Kingston Beach and Kleur festival. With guests like Stylo G, Fantan Mojah and Britty McLean.
As a collective and solo DJ, EER has played at numerous big dancehall, reggae and afrobeat events. Tropical vibes are a constant in his musical career!
Early February 2022, East-End-Rock did a mini-tour in Jamaica. Now he's at your favourite Reggae Geel. But not alone. He’ll bring as special guest … drum roll … Omar Perry!
