Sine Omega Identity

Prove that

\[4 \sin (x) \sin (\omega x) \sin (\omega^2 x) = - (\sin (2x) + \sin (2 \omega x) + \sin (2 \omega^2 x))\]

\[\] Notation: \(\omega\) denotes a primitive cube root of unity.

It is easy because it can be done in one line (brute force) if we express both sides in exponential form (Euler's formula). I find it interesting because there are some beautiful generalizations and elegant proofs for the same. We can also use this identity to express them as infinite sums using partial fraction.
