Drummer Omar Hakim: Getting Lucky with Daft Punk & Stevie Wonder

Many say he is the best drummer alive. Omar Hakim’s first break as a drummer came at age 16 with Patti Labelle. In 1984, Hakim did most of the drum work on Dire Straits’ album Brothers in Arms. Notable artists he has played with are Anita Baker, Sting, Weather Report, Mariah Carey, Madonna, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Chic, Bryan Ferry, Aziza Mustafa Zadeh, Everything but the Girl, Marcus Miller, Kazumi Watanabe, Lee Ritenour, Chieli Minucci, The Rippingtons, Bobby McFerrin, and Daft Punk, among others.

While he is trying on clothes at http://www.Schuyler4.com showroom to wear at his Grammy performance with Daft Punk, Omar talks about his solo project and shares the story of how he and Daft Punk came together. Omar will be wearing Alberto, Haupt and Codice designs.
