Bird of Prey is an array of lyrics, guitars, harmonica, hand percussion instruments--
written, produced, and performed by Omaira Falcon. Her poetic lyrics touch hearts
while her iconic voice and groovy music inspire to dance even those who have no rhythm.
To Omaira, the title Bird of Prey is synonymous with her last name and analogous
the Native American mythology of a bird of prey as a spiritual messenger.
In researching the roots of
her name in Arabic “Oma” means of having creative
powers and “ra” in Egypt means Creator of Life. Interestingly the Egyptian deity Ra
wears the head of the Falcon symbolic of the rising sun—the creator of life.
Hence, Omaira Falcon’s name and title of her album Bird of Prey convey
her mission as a poet, songwriter and musician which is not only to entertain,
but also to inspire creative thinking, and serve as a catalyst for individual change.
Her hope is to create self-awareness of the power inherited within each individual
to shape the world.
Omaira Falcon was born in New York city and has lived in Livorno Italy, Istanbul Turkey,
Puerto Rico, and New Orleans.
