    Omer Makessa Live at Gaunts House

    7:00 pm


    On Saturday Night the 21st of July Gaunts House invites you to enjoy a candle lit evening of music.

    OMER MAKESSA is a master percussionist, experienced performer and singer and songwriter from Martinique in the Caribbean; an island with a vibrant multi-cultural music scene. Omer grew up in a musical family, introduced to music by his father from a young age.

    An accomplished musician with extensive knowledge of African, Latin and Caribbean styles, Omer fuses these styles in his own compositions. He sings in three languages, reflecting the fusion of cultures in the Caribbean.

    “I communicate the spirit and the impulsive and happy lifestyle of Martinique in my songs; which connect to life, love, nature and come from deep within my heart.”



    Like a lot of musicians with a real and true gift of talent, Self taught Victor Chetcuti refers to himself as just “another singer/songwriter”, but Victors musical performances are anything but average.
    Originally his musical journey was unintentional and his only motive was to survive. Travelling around the Middle East he has quite literally and successfully sung for his supper. This changed when he realised that singing other peoples songs was not for him, and he found his flow writing his own songs. As these songs were shared, he began to realise the impact they had on people. Invoking strong emotional response from complete strangers, he pressed on with his journey and the decision to make music his life.
    His mission is to share his music with as many souls as possible and we are over the moon to be able to help him with this.

    “Music is a universal language, it is a blessed gift”
