The Flemish singer-songwriter Tamino hardly any introduction these days. The musical roots of this 21-year-old prodigy son of an Egyptian father and a Belgian mother – reach deep and far. From Jeff Buckley to Oum Kulthum, from Serge Gainsbourg to Edith Piaf, Tamino has absorbed a wide range of influences in a relatively short lifespan.
From passionate, beautiful ballads, stylish pop to daredevil experimentation, Tamino encompasses everything that makes music compelling. No wonder that Colin Greenwood, bassist of Radiohead, wanted to work with him on a new version of Indigo Night. After much anticipation, Tamino’s fantastic debut Amir finally arrived.
