Omnia has been singing since the tender age of five and became a dedicated classical violinist at the age of ten. Looking for more artistic freedom, she decided to take up the acoustic guitar, and not long later discovered writing music as a form of self-expression. A New Yorker and child of an Egyptian father and Italian mother, her diverse perspective has prompted her to take on heavy subjects such as war, relationship abuse, women’s rights, culture, religion and the wide realm of human emotion. While her style is in the vein of commercial pop/rock, it has also adopted the rich sounds of her Mediterranean culture, setting her apart from the thousands of singer/songwriters in the industry. She is also a self-taught belly dancer and choreographer, seeking to create a fusion between East and West in her both music and her dancing.
Omnia is currently attending the Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music at New York University, a prestigious program that only admits 28 students per year. She was also the Staten Island finalist for WNYC Radio’s first ever Battle of the Boroughs after beating out over forty musicians and bands from her hometown. An independent artist, she is in the process of recording and self-producing her debut EP, which is set to be released within the year. Her music is a grassroots movement that will only continue to grow as she takes on the rest of the New York City area and ultimately, the rest of the world.
