At the end of 2019 he had touched down in Italy with two concerts in Rome and Milan, the latter sold out in advance. Now the highly acclaimed Belgian singer-songwriter of Egyptian origin Tamino announces a new series of European dates, including a unique Italian stage scheduled for Thursday 16 March 2023 at Alcatraz in Milan. I tickets for the show will be available in presale for members of the artist community from 10 a.m. on Wednesday 28 Septemberand for all the public from 10 a.m. on Friday 30 September on circuits Ticketone, Ticketmaster e Vivaticket.
The announcement comes just days after the release of his second album Sahar (Communion Records), which comes four years after the resounding international success Amir (Communion Records). Born in the flat of Tamino in Antwerp and supported by collaborators including the bassist of the Radiohead Colin Greenwoodthe producer PJ Maertens and the drummer Ruben Vanhoutte, Sahar is a powerful album that mixes Arabic folk and experimental indie rock with orchestral arrangements. In Sahar Tamino revisits the Arabic oud - the favourite instrument of his grandfather Muharram Fouad, one of Egypt's most famous singers and actors - to make it a suitable instrument for indie rock. The way the oud blends with his voice creates a rich, layered and haunting soundscape. Sahar becomes the place where Jeff Buckley's tragic romanticism meets a cosmopolitan and universalist aesthetic sensibility, a mixture of European, American and Middle Eastern influences.
