In a musical landscape where originality has become increasingly elusive, it takes a truly innovative artist to blaze new trails and shatter existing paradigms. Enter Omar Bowing AKA Omar B, who hails from the vibrant musical hotbed of Austin, Texas. Bowing is a songwriter and virtuoso musician, who plays both the guitar and guitarviol (guitar and violin hybrid). With his latest single, “Women Instrumental,” Bowing has carved out a unique sonic space that defies easy categorization. This is a track that fuses the epic soundscapes of cinematic scores with the elegant, symphonic melodies of classical music, all while infusing a touch of ambient rock, the thundering dynamics of progressive rock, and the fluid, escalating passages of operatic flourishes.
Omar Bowing’s audacious and ambitious approach to music making is a welcome breath of fresh air in a scene where many are content to simply recycle tired ideas and rely on well-worn formulas. His willingness to push boundaries and break free from preconceived notions is nothing short of inspiring, and “Women Instrumental” is a testament to his boundless creativity and musical vision.
In an age where so much of popular music seems to be stuck in a holding pattern, Bowing’s music is a reminder of the power of true innovation and the thrill of exploring uncharted sonic terrain. With “Women Instrumental,” he has created a work of art that is as daring as it is beautiful, as complex as it is accessible, and as timeless as it is timely. In short, this is music that demands attention, and Omar Bowing is an artist who deserves to be on everyone’s radar.
Omar Bowing’s unyielding approach to music is not limited to his singular style, but also extends to his philosophy on life and society. As the title suggests, “Women Instrumental” is a powerful and poignant tribute to the countless women who have made history and changed the world. From mothers and wives to sisters, daughters, friends, and co-workers, Bowing’s track celebrates the countless contributions of women throughout history and in our everyday lives.
Bowing’s dedication to this cause is evident in every note of the track, as he weaves together a tapestry of sound that is at once soaring and delicate, complex and accessible. Back in 2019 Omar Bowing and his band, with the help of 10 musicians from a symphonic orchestra, released a vocal version of this song, simply entitled ‘Woman’. Bowing has now taken that basic template and expanded it into an awe-inspiring instrumental.
With its soaring melodies, intricate instrumentation, and evocative playing from Omar Bowing himself, ‘Women Instrumental’ is a sonic portrait of strength, resilience, and empowerment. The track is a testament to the countless ways in which women have shaped the course of human history, and serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for gender equality and social justice.
In a world that too often overlooks or diminishes the contributions of women, “Women Instrumental” is a powerful statement of solidarity and support. This is music that celebrates the beauty and complexity of the feminine experience, and that serves as a beacon of hope for a more just and equitable future.
As we continue to navigate the ever-changing landscape of the music industry, it is artists like Omar Bowing, who give us hope for the future. His unwavering commitment to innovation and creativity is an inspiration, and “Women Instrumental” is a testament to the transformative power of music when wielded with purpose, precision and passion.
