Take a journey with Om Alec and enjoy the sounds that continue to make him a legend.
Om Alec Khaoli was born in Soweto Nov 5th. He grew up in Zastron and his grandfather who was a baritone singer in their church choir inspired him to play the bass guitar. Little did he know at the time that he would one day be considered one of the greatest bass players to ever live.
He formed a group called The Beaters with his friends Selby Ntuli and Saitana Ndimande in the 60s and attracted the attention of Sipho Mabuse who joined the group as a drummer. They later changed the band's name to Harari after touring Rhodesia - Harare (Zimbabwe).
Om Alec went on to form his own band called Umoja in the 80s and during the same period he established himself as a multi-platinum selling solo artist.
Alec continues in his God given gift of producing timeless music to this very day and his legacy and mastery of his craft can be heard and enjoyed on his Vinyls, CDs and Digital offerings.
