Welcome to one of our favorite corners of the website!  Besides the Discography, this is the Showcase of Omar and The Howlers captured on video, in the press, and in photos. We are grateful for the coverage Omar is receiving by music commentators and the play time on stations across the country. We are fortunate to have recorded a vast collection of albums, as well as having appeared in film, on TV, and even video games.
