We loaned a Lippens Keyboard to Omar Soriano for evaluation and feedback.

Your classic nerd-turned-cool, Omar Soriano was a cellar-dweller making Hip Hop beats out of classic records, and eventually graduating to keyboards in order to recreate the Funk and Jazz the masters were sampling. After doing Rap and Soul for 20 years, he reconnected with his Latin Roots five years ago and migrated to Salsa music, bringing his soulful approach to Latin music.

Equally knowledgeable in Classic Soul
and Afro-Cuban rare grooves as he in cutting edge synthesis and electronic technique, Soriano’s sound combines the past and the future into funky, accessible Latin Pop.
