nothing short of brilliant.”
RIP IT UP

Oscar Jimenez – Australia/ Colombia

Known as the charismatic and energetic lead singer of ARIA nominated band Watussi, Oscar has shared stages with many international artists such as Los Van Van, Seun Kuti, Santana and recently supported Spanish superstar Manu Chao.
Singer, arranger, composer, guitarist and producer, Oscar is an experienced performer of many styles. From Caribbean and South American traditional songs to reggae, funk and Latin jazz with a modern tip. He has performed on well-known stages nationally and all around the world (e.g., Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand and South America) and this year he will be the opening act for Juan Luis Guerra in his first visit to Australia. All of this will set the grounds for a successful release of his debut solo album “Distancia” with a selection of original soulful songs inspired by his Colombian roots and the memories of his journey.
