Omahara

Omahara are a Dark Ambient band from Hobart, Tasmania. Omahara birthed in 2012 with the desire to make music with a difference. Appearing sporadically in unusual locations, the trio became known for a sound of cacophonous and sometimes beautifully silent instrumental compositions driven by tribal rhythms

In 2013 the band hosted a series of events known simply as 'The Third Sea' - held at Three Thirds Barbers Lounge & promoted almost entirely through word of mouth, The Third Sea gave a platform to musical experimenters of all disciplines and brought together a community of exploratory sound lovers.

In 2014 Omahara launched their debut album in a historic church and set off on a short tour of Hobart & Melbourne to promote their release, playing alongside local favourites Machines of Indeterminate Origin, Evil Goat & Oceans + interstate monoliths We Lost the Sea, Fourteen Nights at Sea, Bear the Mammoth, Worm Crown, Dark Pools & Heads of Charm.
