Omega Okello has released her new CD, Kiwomera Emmeeme. You can pre-order it now at Amazon and it will be released on May 27th, 2008. I’ve heard her sing live and it’s a great experience.

Here’s the blurb from her website:

Not only does this East African Diva burst on the world music scene with a unique name, but she also blazons into the industry with a fantastic new sound. Omega Bugembe Okello, who just goes by the name Omega, is blessed with a powerful vocal range and the international ability of singing in various languages and dialects.

The songstress who hails from Uganda has been described as “having a voice that touches the soul”. If you listen to her music you will undoubtedly agree. She definitely has the kind of voice that pleasantly, but hauntingly seeps into one’s soul and her latest album, Kiwomera Emmeeme, embodies this very essence.

Listen to Mujje a few times and you will be humming it the rest of the day!
