The music, and band name, symbolizes “Positivity”. It’s a message with a strong sense for finding one’s own happiness, balanced with thoughtful awareness. With hypnotic grooves and satisfying positive vibes, OMANI‘s uplifting reggae music makes you think, makes you wanna move, and makes you have a good time.
Performing mainly original songs, as well as spontaneous improvisational dub jams, yet sometimes also a tasty selection of a few cover songs by Dennis Brown, Tenor Saw, Bob Marly, and even the Eagles, and Steve Miller.
This band does not rely on stereotypical tactics such as fakin’ jamaican patois, preaching the bible, or singing about ganja. Instead they provide the audience with a broad texture of sound featuring catchy hooks, horn lines, and vocal harmonies, delivered with a contagious and familiar yet refreshing feeling of pure musical pleasure.
The last time OMANI performed in Monterey was for the 14th annual Monterey Bay Reggaefest on Labor Day weekend 2009.

Imagine a sleeping lion in a tranquil African Savannah, warmed by the morning sun. Birds are singing and the air is still. Yet somewhere deep inside the sleeping lion lurks his beastly nature, ready for a deathly strike if hungry or provoked. Realization’s Sleeping Lion is an anthem that expresses the band’s ideology that it is best to stay as peaceful as possible. Besides just bringing appealing music to the people, Realization also wants to start what they call a spiritual revolution. They hope that their lyrics are freely integrated into the psyches of their listeners. They encourage people to choose peace over violence or aggression when difficult situations or conflicts arise in life. In a time where financial problems are on everyone’s mind because of the flailing economy, the band wants you to stop agonizing over issues like money.
“People aren’t in the right state of mind,(being concerned over) paying bills… In this world, nothing goes your way, you have to find your own..escape the mindset of the everyday, be a real person, don’t just worry.” says Isaac, who takes credit for bringing the new band together after their split from 40831. His opinion is that it may be one of society’s main dysfunctions that “we don’t know how to say hi to a stranger.”
Reggae has a certain influence over their musical style yet they also fuse hip-hop beats, lyrical combinations, and some crazy samples including what sounds like a church choir in Equalizer. According to Isaac, something that makes the band’s sound especially unique is that they have a d.j. and live instruments working together on stage which makes it seem like you are listening to an album.
Isaac describes the meaning behind Sleeping Lion, “ Deep inside you you have an angry beast that is sleeping. When the beast is sleeping let him sleep, don’t cross a line, don’t anger people…carry yourself as a peaceful person. Yeah, I’m a peaceful loving person, but when I see things that are offensive I have to maintain (that peacefulness) regardless of what happens at that moment, people gotta be learnin’ to control themselves.”
