Born in Brooklyn, NYC, guitarist & vocalist Tamar-kali describes her music as "aggressive melodic rock and deconstructed chamber rock, with a voice that shakes your foundation with soulful intensity".
Tamar-kali became a solo writer, musician and composer in 1997. She rose to prominence starring in James Spooner's award-winning documentary Afro-Punk.
Inspired by her longtime love of strings the Psychochamber Ensemble was established in 1998 - an all female instrumentalist string sextet which includes deconstructed versions of songs from her 5ive Piece rock project and pieces arranged and composed specifically for strings.
Her newest performance piece and project is Pseudoacoustic Siren Songs which shows a more soft and sensual side. Backed with a “pseudo” acoustic band, Tamar bridges the gap between her New York City rock-scene roots and love of strings and torch songs.
Influences: Fishbone, Bad Brains, PJ Harvey, Grace Jones...
