Tamino is pleased to release a new live EP. Live At Ancienne Belgique is streaming now, and has been released by Arts & Crafts. Tamino’s new four track EP was recorded across Tamino’s three sell-out Brussels shows in late 2018, and includes a stunning cover of “Seasons” by Chris Cornell. The EP also features Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood, playing bass on Indigo Nightand “So It Goes”.

Tamino: “On the first of the three nights, I tried out a Chris Cornell cover (“Seasons”) in the encore. It’s a beautiful song that meant a lot for me when I was a teenager (and it still does). I hope I did the song and its writer justice.

“The Ancienne Belgique shows meant a lot to me. We’d been touring non-stop, and it felt wonderful to be back in our home country playing three shows in one of the most beautiful venues of Belgium. I couldn’t have imagined a better way to present my debut album, and am grateful for everyone who was there.”

Tamino has also announced his debut North American tour, which includes stops in Montreal and Toronto. Tickets are on sale now, full tour dates are listed below.

2018 proved a breakthrough year for the young musician of Belgian, Lebanese and Egyptian descent, but 2019 has already continued building on that momentum and promises so much more is to come. From steady word of mouth support across Belgium, Tamino’s music did what all good music has a habit of doing, spreading far beyond his hometown roots, buoyed by some exquisite live performances and new fans sharing his recordings with anyone willing to listen. France and Germany have soon taken Tamino’s debut album Amir to their hearts, and the UK is now seemingly succumbing to its broad appeal too, with a recent sell-out show at London’s EartH proving an extremely hot ticket. Following several standout shows at SXSW this March, Tamino will now embark on his first North American tour this September.

At the heart of what Tamino does is what the best artists have been putting into their music since time began; heart and soul. If there are countless lovelorn male singer-songwriters plying their trade right now with radio-friendly songs of unrequited love and unexpected loss, there is something altogether more otherworldly and beautifully obtuse about the sheer atmosphere and delivery of Tamino’s songs on similar themes. His voice, at one moment sweetly crooning at the next displaying a blistering and flawless falsetto showing off his breath-taking three-octave range. As influenced by the long-standing greats of classical music as he is of any contemporary peers of both Eastern and Western origin, Tamino has that innate ability to harness his inspiration into something truly special and operating far left of centre.

Friend and fan Colin Greenwood (Radiohead), who spent a few days recording bass on assorted Amir tracks, appears alongside Tamino at these Ancienne Belgique show recordings, including “Indigo Night” which is streaming here today.

Following his debut shows in the US at SXSW in Austin, Texas earlier this month (“The promise was bigger than I ever imagined” – NPR) the word on Tamino and his brooding sounds continue to find new ears, all wanting to keep their deeply personal discovery a secret, yet tell the world what they’re missing. It’s a tactic that’s proved very fruitful for the young artist, and 2019 is looking likely to be the year that Tamino and his record Amir will become a secret no more.

On May 10, Tamino will release his live EP titled Live At Ancienne Belgique which includes three incredible live interpretations of "Persephone", "Indigo Night", "So It Goes", as well as a spectacular rendition Chris Cornell's "Seasons".

Of the live shows, Tamino says:

“These shows meant a lot to me. We’d been touring non stop around the globe and it felt wonderful to be back in our home country playing three shows in one of the most beautiful venues of Belgium. Couldn’t have imagined a better way to present my debut album. Grateful for everyone who was there.

The first of the three nights at the AB I tried out a Chris Cornell cover (‘Seasons’) in the encore. It’s a beautiful song that has meant a lot for me when I was a teenager (and still does). I hope I did the song and its writer justice.

On a couple of songs we were joined by our friend Colin Greenwood, which made the shows even more unforgettable. You’ll hear him play on ‘Indigo Night’ and on ‘So It Goes’.”

This Summer, Tamino will perform in Canada at the Montreal Jazz Fest. Details can be found below.

Last Fall, he was featured in Live Nation’s One’s To Watch, which spoke of Tamino’s voice saying his “falsetto surpasses “face melting” and rises to a space of pureness that can only be described as divine.” His stunning live performances have garnered large and growing audiences across Europe and the UK. Including sold out show across Belgium, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Ireland, The United Kingdom and more. Recently, he announced his first headline stadium show in Nov 2019 at Antwerp’s Lotto Arena.

The BBC hailed Amir as “The New Sound Of The Nile” an ode to Tamino’s grandfather the famed Egyptian singer and movie star Muharram Fouad. The Independent included Amir in their top 10 albums of 2018 and asked “Is Tamino the heir to Jeff Buckley?”. Tamino won the Anchor Award at Germany’s 2018 Reeperbahn festival and has been nominated for 5 MIA Award’s in Belgium.  

Tamino is making a splash in the fashion world and is featured alongside supermodel Gisele Bündchen in Missoni’s SS19 Collection. During Paris Fashion week he was featured “in conversation” with Maison Valentino and performed a solo version of “Indigo Nights”; watch here. Most recently, he has been featured in Vogue Hommes’ latest 14 page spread which was photographed by critically lauded photographer Paolo Roversi.

Today, Tamino is pleased to share his latest video for the track Each Time which came off of his debut album Amir. The video is a still yet evolving landscape – making it the perfect backdrop for the song’s mesmerizing melodies and ethereal orchestral arrangements that utilize the Arabic scale, making for a track that is strikingly subversive to the western ear. The young artist’s debut album Amir was produced by PJ Maertens and Jo Francken, and features Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood on the single “Indigo Night”. Amir is out now on Arts & Crafts in North America, and Communion throughout the rest of the world.

Of Belgian, Egyptian, and Lebanese heritage, the 22-year-old musician named Tamino-Amir Moharam Fouad has written and shaped an album filled with startling sit-up-and-listen power. His voice, at one moment sweetly crooning (“Cigar”) at the next displaying a blistering and flawless falsetto showing off his breath-taking three octave range (“Habibi”). Throughout the album, Tamino is joined by a collective of Arabic musicians based in Brussels called Nagham Zikrayat an orchestra predominantly made up of professional musicians from the Middle East, most of whom are refugees that fled Iraq and Syria.

This March Tamino will play his first ever North American show at SXSW 2019. Last Fall he was featured in Live Nation’s One’s To Watch, which spoke of Tamino’s voice saying his “falsetto surpasses “face melting” and rises to a space of pureness that can only be described as divine.” His stunning live performances have garnered large and growing audiences across Europe and the UK.
