Today, Tamino releases the deluxe edition of Amir, his breathtaking debut album for Arts & Crafts. Amir deluxe features new songs, never-before-released demos, and live performances with Nagham Zikrayat, the Brussels-based orchestra of Syrian and Iraqi refugees that played on the original album. 

Tamino also shares the visually stunning live video for “Indigo Night”. Directed by Bastiaan Lochsand and Tamino’s brother Ramy Moharam Fouad, and shot in Cairo over two days this past summer, the “Indigo Night” video pays homage to Tamino’s Egyptian lineage (his grandfather was legendary Egyptian singer/actor Muharram Fouad). V Magazine calls the video “an absolutely gorgeous, visually stunning work of art.”

“It was a wonderful experience making a video in the country of my father,” says Tamino, who cites the mid-20th century Cairo art movement “Art & Liberté” as inspiration. “I love Cairo, a city of many contrasts and complex, incredible history. I hope this video can serve as a small ode to the city.”

NPR’s Bob Boilen dubbed Tamino "one of the most remarkable and memorable voices to ever grace the NPR Tiny Desk." Watch his recent Tiny Desk performance featuring Radiohead's Colin Greenwood on bass here.

At just 22 years old, Tamino possesses an effortless and other-worldy 3-octave vocal range that has drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley and Thom Yorke, but with Arabic tonal inflections. Though he grew up in Antwerp, Tamino is deeply connected to his Egyptian and Lebanese heritage, and his music combines contemporary influences with the traditions of his ancestors. 

PRAISE FOR TAMINO

"One of the most remarkable and memorable voices to ever grace the Tiny Desk." -Bob Boilen, NPR Music

“There is a certain intensity to his performance...” -KCRW

“He has mastered the dynamic of being both soft and strong...When Tamino performs, his captivating voice sends everyone to their own moment of euphoria.”  -Flaunt

TAMINO SHARES NEW LIVE VIDEO OF “INTERVALS” WITH THE NAGHAM ZIKRAYAT ORCHESTRA

STUNNING FILMED RECORDING OF “INTERVALS” PERFORMED LIVE AT JET STUDIOS IN BRUSSELS FEATURING THE NAGHAM ZIKRAYAT ORCHESTRA

Tamino is very pleased to share a very special filmed recording of “Intervals” featuring the Nagham Zirkayat Orchestra. It features on the deluxe version of his debut album, Amir, which is released on the October 18 through Arts & Crafts.

WATCH AND SHARE “INTERVALS” HERE

Tamino’s collaboration with the Brussels based Nagham Zikrayat is almost the dictionary definition of serendipity. Although the majority of the playing heard on Amir is the man himself, he is joined by this collective across a handful of songs. The Firka (orchestra) is predominantly made up of professional musicians from the Middle East, most of which have refugee status having predominantly fled from Iraq, Morocco, Tunisia and Syria. Members of the orchestra are long-standing fans of Tamino’s late grandfather, a famous actor-musician in the golden age of Egyptian cinema. They contacted Tamino to request his performance at a concert in honour of his late grandfather. Not being a native speaker, Tamino politely declined but invited the orchestra to assist him in the making of Amir. Watch him perform a stunning rendition of “Intervals” with their assistance live from Jet Studios to get a feel for what they offer to his sound.

LISTEN AND SHARE “CROCODILE”

Having just wrapped a run of Canadian tour dates, Tamino will make a very special, first trip out to the Middle East and North Africa in October, taking in debut shows in Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, and Turkey. The demand for his arrival out there is testament to the word of mouth momentum that Amir has already accumulated outside the typical touring countries that he’s already made his name within. He then returns to Europe in November with two new UK shows in Manchester and The Scala in London in early December, his biggest UK so far.

Amir was produced by PJ Maertens and Jo Francken, and recorded at both Maertens’ house in Belgium and at Audiworkx Studios in Holland.

WATCH AND SHARE TAMINO’S NPR TINY DESK PERFORMANCE HERE

It’s been a breakthrough year for 22-year-old Tamino Moharam Fouad, the Antwerp based musician of Egyptian and Lebanese heritage, with his voice infiltrating the far corners of Europe and beyond building a fanatical fanbase around his startling, visceral, and stirring emotive sound. 

Amir is a record that is proving a real word-of-mouth success, ending 2018 in The Independent’s Albums of the Year and finding support on the BBC, NPR, and a variety of high-profile European television and radio stations. It’s not just the media that have been picking up on Tamino’s power, but fellow musicians too. This year Tamino has performed with Lana Del Rey at her request, and he counts Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood as a bandmate now (who also features on a selection of recordings on Amir playing bass guitar).

Over the course of Amir, Tamino captures a range of emotions from romance to desolation, and almost everything in between. It’s mood music, painted in a number of different shades. This deluxe release will act as a timely reminder of what makes Tamino such a special young artist, and shows the progression he has soon made from those initial demo recordings right through to his stunning live sound of today.

It’s been a breakthrough year for 22-year-old Tamino Moharam Fouad, the Antwerp based musician of Egyptian and Lebanese heritage, with his voice infiltrating the far corners of Europe and beyond building a fanatical fanbase around his startling, visceral, and stirring emotive sound. In November, Tamino returns to Antwerp to headline the Lotto Arena.

Amir is a record that is proving a real word-of-mouth success, ending 2018 in The Independent’s Albums of the Year and finding support on the BBC, NPR, and a variety of high-profile European television and radio stations. It’s not just the media that have been picking up on Tamino’s power, but fellow musicians too.

Tamino embarks on his debut North American tour, beginning Sep 11 in New York City (SOLD OUT), then makes his first appearance in Toronto on Sep 17 (SOLD OUT).
