Omar Hakim - drums

From playing in his father's band at age ten to selling out stadium shows with Madonna, Omar Hakim has done it all. His talent and unique style have made him a favorite among drummers and musicians worldwide.

A graduate of the New York School of Music and Art, Omar began his career recording with various pop and soul groups.
