Belgian-Egyptian Rising Talent Tamino Announces New Album ‘Sahar’, Drops Stellar Single ‘Fascination’

Belgian-Egyptian rising musical talent Tamino announces details of his upcoming second album Sahar. The album follows hit critically acclaimed debut Amir which would prove a hit with tracks including Indigo Night and Habibi. Tamino’s follow-up will arrive on the 23rd of September and is available in numerous formats.

Blending a multitude of genres including singer-songwriter, folk and rock, Tamino has a unique sound beautifully encapsulated in his soulful vocal delivery and imagery-packed lyrics. A press-release shares: “Sahar was born in Tamino’s Antwerp apartment. Already adept at playing guitar and piano, Tamino took up the oud, an Arabic lute, under the mentorship of a Syrian refugee living in Antwerp. The instrument served as a key tool in the songwriting process and provides a melancholic soundscape that is threaded throughout the project. The record is a distillation of Tamino’s solitary reflections.”

The album’s release is preceded by singles The First Disciple and Fascination which impress with their traditional sound and Tamino’s intimate vocals. These will make up some of the ten tracks to feature on the upcoming album. This can be pre-ordered here.
