Elan Tamara

Fascinated by Balinese Gamelan and Steve Reich, Elan Tamara makes music as uncategorisable, as heartfelt and beautifully otherworldly as anything you’re likely to hear. She has carved out a space so unique and unclassifiable that people have fallen back on namechecking other female artists with a distinctive aesthetic and outlook – Kate Bush, Bjork, Joanna Newsom and their ilk. Needless to say, she doesn’t sound like them, either. Her first two EPs were released on producer Kwes' Bokkle imprint, her third on Big Dada. With a voice that can be smooth and calming or raging and hurt, Tamara pulls long vocal lines and next level harmonies over the syncopated minimalism of her piano playing. As well as her own music, she worked in DELS' live band in 2011 and with Kwes live from 2012 onward.
