Saudi Arabian singer and songwriter Tamtam is based between Los Angeles and Riyadh. At the age of 13, she relocated to California due to her parent’s belief that seeing the world through a different lens is important.
Since then, Tamtam has been channeling all her life experiences into her biggest venture, music. Her sound is not one to put in a box, but you can hear Alternative R&B and Pop influences. Her single “We’ve Got Wings”, released in late 2015, helped promote a Saudi Breast Cancer awareness organization founded by Princess Reema bint Bandar. “Gender Game” is a song about Gender Equality and her journey as a Saudi woman pursuing a music career. In 2017, she released her EP “Identify Myself” with lyrics of encouragement towards identifying ourselves as human beings first. Her defiant single “Rise” released in 2018 reached over 1 million Youtube views. In 2019 she released her EP “Rough Around the Edges”, which is dedicated to independent artists, and explores vulnerability and embracing imperfections. She recently performed her song “One Earth” at the Global Goals World Cup in New York City. Her latest single “Heartsick” is co-produced with Saud, a fellow musician from Saudi, and it is about realizing how connected all human beings are, especially at a time like this.
She is getting ready to release a new project where she embraces her identity as a bridge between the Middle East and the West more than ever before.
