AZTEC MYTHS & LEGENDS: A NARRATED CONCERT BY OME

This unique collection, gathers together ten original songs composed and performed by OME, based on ten carefully selected myths and legends from the pre-Hispanic period and the Spanish conquest.

The music was inspired by the myths and legends of the Aztec civilization, their religious beliefs, their view of the universe, and some elements of the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire, in order to give use to the legacy of the Mexican people.

The Mexican culture, is one of the most fascinating cultures worldwide. A country rich in tradition, history, and culture that has undergone a massive transformation throughout time, makes Mexico a place as unique and diverse as its hidden tales.

 

Album Review

«OME World – Aztec Myths and Legends» is one of the most ambitious New Age music releases in recent times. Not only is the group OME trying to capture the atmosphere of 10 Aztec myths and legends, but they are also aiming to recreate the sound and expression of this proud ancient civilization. I’m happy to report that OME is succeeding in almost every aspect of their incredibly challenging task.

In conclusion: «OME World – Aztec Myths and Legends» is not exactly easy listening. But give it some time, read the myths and you will see what a truly rewarding listen this is. OME succeeds in making the Aztec cosmology accessible in a whole new way. Indeed, OME extends the limits of what storytelling through music is all about.
